MFI's Health and Safety performance is monitored by the Safety Department. A monthly report is sent to the director responsible for Health and Safety and includes a tabulation of all customer accidents and 'most time' staff accidents, the number of hours lost through occupational sickness and the number of visits by Environmental Health Officers and Fire Officers. These statistics are compared with figures for the same period in the previous year.
MFI has been able to maintain a very good record on accidents at work. In the period 1992-97, reportable accidents averaged 63 a year. With a total average workforce of approximately 5,500, this worked out at 1.1compared with figures produced by the European Safety Agency of 4.5for all European workers during 1993.
