Colpac has received the Health and Safety Seal of Excellence Award from the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF).

This successful review from the BPIF demonstrates Colpac’s continued commitment to health and safety across its UK manufacturing facility and builds on Colpac’s ISO45001 accreditation.

To receive the BPIF Health and Safety Seal of Excellence Award, companies must achieve a minimum score of 80% from the audit with all legal requirements being verified. This includes a review of procedures and policies, safe systems of work, risk assessments, activities, and records. Colpac’s score of 100% demonstrates that the BPIF auditor was thoroughly impressed with health and safety at the manufacturing site in Flitwick, Bedfordshire, and was delighted to award the seal of excellence.

“The award confirms our prioritisation of health and safety across all aspects of our operations. We always welcome opportunities for improvement and the BPIF review was considered a tool to further reinforce our positive safety culture. Our people are integral to this, and we are proud of what we have achieved together thus far.”

Frances Dickman, Compliance and QA Manager at Colpac

Engagement with the BPIF as a platinum member gives Colpac access to expert support, industry training, and business improvement consultation. These resources help to provide additional frameworks to develop active awareness of health and safety in the workplace.

“I am thrilled that we have been awarded the seal of excellence for health and safety. It is testament to the hard work of our team to ensure that we adhere to strict safety practices and look after each other.” Neil Goldman, CEO at Colpac
