High Value Manufacturing

As High value Manufacturing (HVM) companies become increasingly proactive both in creating new markets (arising from the use of new technologies) and adapting to changing market demands, so the requirements of health and safety performance must change.

This means responding to the implications of new working practices - whether as a result of using new materials or of changes to working patterns.
