GLASS Charter Logo

In 2001, the glass industry took up the then governments Revitalising Health and Safety Initiative. In partnership with industry, unions and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), British Glass and the Glass and Glazing Federation launched the GLASS Charter (Goal: Less Accidents, Safer Sites).

This initiative aims to improve health and safety performance in all sectors of the glass industry by providing best practice guidelines, advice and actively encourages members of industry to exchange ideas with each other to continually improve their health and safety practices.

Working closely with industry, unions, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and other stakeholders allows us to identify and consult on issues as they arise and gives our industry a unique opportunity to raise concerns, input into both UK and EU legislation, share best practice, case studies and initiatives as well as access a wide range of information, guidance and support.
