Occupational Health and Safety is of vital importance for UK food and drink manufacturers. Through our membership of the Health and Safety Executive’s Food and Drink Manufacturers’ forum, the FDF works with HSE to give our members access to the latest updates and information to help keep your workforce safe and your workplace compliant.

2021 will see the relaunch of our Occupational Health and Safety committee for members. This committee will draw on the expertise of both HSE and our affiliate members to provide our members with the most up to date insights on Occupational Health and Safety policy and practice.
