Despatch order cut-off times and Health & Safety changes

CSP Health & Safety - PPE/C Changes


We would like to make you aware of a change in policy relating to personal protective equipment and clothing (PPE/C) required in all operational areas. Firth has carried out a review of its PPE/C after analysing its injury data and industry trends in raising the bar around safety clothing and equipment. To this end we have made a decision that by 30 October the following additional items are required in all operation areas at any Firth or CSP site.

  1. Protective eyewear
  2. Ankle to wrist coverage (long/long)

We thank you in advance for your cooperation when visiting any of our sites and operational areas.
