We are committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and health for our employees and customers. Public transport remains the safest way to travel and we have a good safety record. We have a proactive culture across the Group that ensures health and safety remains our top priority.
At our bus and rail operations in the UK and North America we have a strong focus on employee training, accident reduction, regulatory compliance and security preparedness. Health and Safety processes and performance are monitored and reported on across the Group with immediate action taken should there be a need to address issues within our procedures.
Our Health, Safety and Environment Committee, chaired by a non-executive director, considers this area of the business and monitors a range of performance indicators, reporting to the Board on these matters. We expect our suppliers and contractors to have the same commitment as our employees to complying with appropriate health and safety regulations.
