Through a range of programmes and training we are working hard to achieve our Target Zero for accidents and ill health caused by work. All contracts are assessed for health and safety risks at each stage and senior managers regularly visit to review health and safety with employees at all levels.
We actively encourage people to play their part. Our 'Don't Walk By' programme enables people to identify and challenge unsafe acts and conditions and suggest improvements. It has proven successful in raising important issues and creating a health and safety culture of awareness and openness in which people have the confidence to speak out.
Through our 'Health Like Safety' programme we are also committed to promoting healthier lifestyles and helping our people to manage their health.
Don't Walk By
'Don't Walk By' is all about creating a health and safety culture of awareness and openness in which people have the confidence to identify and challenge unsafe acts and conditions and make suggestions for improvement.
The overall objective is to enable any person to raise a Health and Safety concern or suggest a health and safety improvement, and ensure that issues are effectively resolved.
Managing health and safety
We have well-established policies and systems in place to manage health and safety, including applying 11 leading and lagging indicators within rigorous risk frameworks to monitor and improve performance.
All our businesses have formal health and safety management systems, and we are proud that we continue to be certified to BS OHSAS 18001 across our UK and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions. All contracts are assessed for health and safety risks at each stage, from design and delivery to final use, and senior managers regularly visit contracts to review health and safety with employees at all levels.
Our management systems are supported by a group-wide policy, implemented through awareness-raising campaigns and formal training.
