As a global employer we take very seriously the responsibility that we hold towards our staff. And not only our staff. But our suppliers, our customers, our partners; in fact, everyone who comes into contact with our operation, wherever in the world that may be. Part of our commitment is to the safe and secure working of our people and those who use our services, but also in the training and development of our teams and customers to ensure safe and sustainable practices.
As part of this we have an established Ethical Committee responsible for a range of policies reflecting and enforcing our ethical standards, including: Gantrex Code of Conduct, Gantrex Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery policies, Gantrex Global Vendor Code of Conduct and the Gantrex Global Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Policy.
We also carry out a yearly Employee Satisfaction Survey to get direct feedback from our employees around the world leading to improvements in the workplace.
We prioritize Safety and invest heavily in cutting-edge solutions which deliver a positive impact on health and safety as well as the environment. Within our own operation a recent example of this can be seen in our newly installed Fumes Aspiration unit that provides a triple benefit: improved employee health, a reduction in safety risks and minimisation of environmental impact.
Looking to our impacts in the field, our technical developments provide the industry with innovative solutions that are not only more efficient but also contribute to higher safety and well-being of the staff. The HingeGuard™ Short Rail solution is a great example of this, minimizing the operational impact on the trolley driver by reducing shocks by 80% and vibrations by 30%. This in turn increases driver comfort, reducing risk of injuries linked to the workplace.
We believe in giving the Power to our People to design and innovate programs for good. Our colleagues around the world, supported by our leadership teams, are encouraged to innovate and create meaningful initiatives, regardless of scale. One such program relates to our Canadian team who transformed a previously unused backyard into a thriving sanctuary of local, pesticide-free produce. Beyond being a beautiful site, this garden champions ecological responsibility and community concerns. This initiative perfectly resonates with Gantrex’s pledge to environmental stewardship, proving the power that small individual steps can have towards a more sustainable world.
