Visiting Cranswick Foods

Following the tragic deaths of 3 workers from COVID-19, I visited Cranswick in Wombwell with John Healey MP to see for myself what safety measures they have introduced to protect their workforce.

Workers' health must come first. Every effort must be made to make higher-risk workplaces, such as meat processing plants, COVID-secure.

I remain concerned that the Health and Safety Executive has acted too slow to address workers' concerns during the pandemic.

I have called on them to do more to inspect and sanction businesses where concerns are raised about unsafe working practices in our community.

If constituents have any concerns about workplace safety across Barnsley then please get in touch.
