Clay Technology magazine
Baggeridge Brick's Rudgwick site in West Sussex is the first UK brick factory to receive OHSAS 18001 certification. The standard rewards the development of an occupational health and safety management system. Baggeridge has been addressing health and safety work practices as part of the ‘Pledge' made by members of the British Ceramic Confederation in 2000. The aim is to reduce the number of working days lost due to work-related injury and ill health by 30% by 2010, as well as ensuring each staff member has received relevant training.
