Health & Safety

Our aim is to ensure that Everyone goes home safe and well every single day.


We work to ensure we are legally compliant, always trying to reduce our safety risks and develop and maintain a great safety culture we can all be proud of. 


We focus on the development of our Safety Policy and Management Framework, providing expert advice and guidance to the business, risk assessments, ensuring effective investigation of safety incidents and our Stay Safe Review program.

“For me, the most enjoyable part of my role at Wickes is knowing that the work I do goes towards improving and enhancing other people’s working lives; making them and the working environment safer and healthier. No two days are the same in my job and I thrive on the variety it offers. I enjoy helping and supporting people to find solutions and practical ways to manage the risks they own.
