Health & safety

There is nothing more important at Rentokil Initial than ensuring everyone goes home safe at the end of their working day. Our colleagues, our families and our customers rely on this commitment. Safety, health and the environment will always be our first priority and there can be no compromise on this.

Our colleagues are at the heart of our plan to enable THE RIGHT PEOPLE to do THE RIGHT THINGS in THE RIGHT WAY. Health and safety is embedded in this plan and is the first item on our Colleague and Customer Promises; the framework for the culture of our company.
