Introduction of our 'Life Saving Rules' based around six critical issues common to all parts of the Group ranging from working at height, to traffic management and lifting operations.
The fundamental role of the Health and Safety Department is that of an advisory body to the line management and business partners of the project teams, helping to develop key health and safety initiatives, strategies and plans. We operate a Health and Safety Management System in full compliance with the provisions of OHSAS 18001. For us, the highest occupational health and safety risks in the company occur within our construction business, at our 16 vehicular workshops or in our warehouses and the types of risks are very different between those locations. Injury incidences can range from occupational health conditions such as tinnitus to physical damage such as hand and finger injuries or foot fractures.
All our incidents or accidents are recorded online and data regularly reported upon at Executive Committee meetings. At weekly Tool Box Talks, on each of our construction sites and in our
workshops, any safety related incidents are discussed and lessons learned are shared.
In 2016, we did not suffer any major or disabling injuries or fatalities.
Our target Zero Accidents Every Day reflects our aim to reduce all reportable injuries to zero by 2020. Since the launch of Zero Accidents Every Day, we have seen a reduction in our Lost Time Injury Rate (LTIFR) and a similar downward trend in severity of injury rate.
