Safety & Environment
Safety and the Environment are now an integral part of any company’s business operations. This is true of Honda for all its global and local operations - including Honda of the UK Manufacturing Ltd (HUM). A healthy, safe and environmentally responsible workplace and workforce is vital to us, and to achieve it we operate all aspects of our business in compliance with our stated policies and procedures. We also comply with all relevant legislation as an absolute minimum, aiming to exceed these standards wherever we can. Our Safety and Environment policies are the starting point of this activity, supported by company action guidelines that provide direction to our improvement activities and clearly establish our responsibilities.
Honda's environmental and safety activities are reinforced by the achievement of the Environmental Management standard ISO 14001:2004 and the Safety Management standard OHSAS 18001:2007. This has strengthened the process of continuous improvement and assured compliance with legislation.

In a global capacity, Honda’s quest for safety is not limited to the needs of car drivers and motorcycle riders. Honda’s total commitment to ‘Safety for Everyone’ extends to passengers, pedestrians, occupants of other vehicles and everyone on the road. Honda will continue to develop and refine its innovative technologies to realise a safer society. Read more here: http://www.world.honda.com/safety/index.html
