G’s Wins Accolade with Help from SHE Software

By Posted on 2 m read

G’s Group, an international fresh produce company, won an award in the ‘agriculture, food and beverages’ category at Verdantix Health and Safety Innovation Awards thanks to the implementation of SHE Software across its organisation. Since using this software, the incident reporting, incident management, and real time communication have improved.

G’s introduced the Assure platform from SHE back in 2014 to tackle the lack of consistency in reporting incidents, gaps in visibility and a time-consuming paper based report system. Assure provides organisations worldwide with an easy and simple way of tracking, managing and reporting on health, safety and compliance.

“Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, getting our people home safe every night is our top priority and we are proud to receive industry recognition for the work we have done. By giving all employees access to SHE Software’s Assure we have effectively improved the way we communicate, manage and share information. The software is helping in our objective to give every person in the company a health and safety voice,” said John Boyle, Head of Health, Safety & Risk at G’s.

The company designed together with SHE Software a Safety Management Portal, where all employees, contractors and seasonal workers could log incidents, share best practice and conduct important tasks, such as audits and risk assessments. It is accessible by computer, tablet and smartphone; therefore it can be used from any location.

In addition, G’s has the freedom to tailor and modify the system to fit with its rapidly changing and diverse environment.

“It has been fantastic to see the impact that Assure has had on G’s as a business. Our software has helped them to foster a positive and inclusive health and safety culture that offers consistency when managing, monitoring, tracking and reporting on health and safety across the whole organisation,” concluded Matthew Elson, CEO of SHE Software.

Cheese Is the Perfect Gift this Easter

By Posted on 2 m read

If you are looking for something original to put on the Easter table, search no more! The High Weald Dairy is maturing Sussex-made cheese that will fill the supermarket shelves in the run up to the holiday. Instead of choosing chocolate Easter eggs and other sweet treats, how about you stay off sugar and delight yourself with a savoury cheese treat?

“Cheese lends itself to sharing so it makes a great gift and a great food to celebrate with – especially at the end of Lent and a time of fasting,” said Sarah Hardy, who owns and runs the High Weald Dairy with husband Mark. “It’s delicious to eat, lovely to share and it’s good for people who are environmentally-aware because it’s more sustainable. We know where the milk comes from, all the ingredients are fully traceable with low food miles and it does not come with a great deal of packaging.”

High Weald Dairy offers several cheese selection boxes available to buy online, such as Alternative Selection, which only includes sheep and goat milk cheese, Sussex Selection, which celebrates the area in which the cheese is made, and Mellow Selection that includes milder cheeses.

Another great alternative gift for cheese lovers would be the one-day cheese making courses that the dairy runs at any time of the year. The vouchers can be bought online or directly from the office at the High Weald Dairy in Horsted Keynes and they include the chance to learn a new skill in a hands-on lesson, a kilo of cheese to take home, a tour behind the scenes at the dairy and a delicious homemade lunch.

The cheese is available on sale throughout Sussex and beyond in farm shops and delicatessens. For more information or to find your nearest stockist visit: www.highwealddairy.co.uk
