Because Health & Safety is one of the top 10 areas where non-conformances are raised during social audits, SIZA decided to compile a guideline for our members on Health & Safety (H&S) practices and requirements. The aim of this Guide for Health & Safety Management is to assist growers with the implementation of H&S practices and requirements. This guideline is in line with the SIZA Standard requirements and must be seen as a supporting document to achieve compliance and to drive continuous improvement. For your convenience we also included a section on the COVID-19 regulations (page 97).
This guideline underwent several review-processes whereby various experts, industry leaders and producers from various areas and commodities provided insight and guidance on the content. This inclusive process also allowed for adequate oversight of requirements.
