But Malvern water, which emanates from a spring here in the hills, is used to make a famous mineral that you’ll find on the shelves of some supermarkets, and on the drinks lists of many top-class restaurants. The water itself is well-known for its health benefits, but it is the bottling processes of any types of glass bottles or jars that can lead to a particular type of injury in the workplace; namely an injury to workers’ hearing.
