Health and Safety Annual Report 2008/2009


The work to continually improve Health and Safety has grown in stature throughout the Company since the last reporting year. Generally awareness of Health & Safety has been raised further by the Employment of a Productive Health and Safety Advisor working along side the Health and Safety Manager to ensure compliance is met through Auditing, Documentation Evaluation, Investigation works, continual training, safety meetings and various safety bulletins, as well as filtering all Supervisors and Managers (In due course) through either the SSSTS (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) or the SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) which has enhanced the Health and Safety Culture throughout the Company.

The Health & Safety Manager and Team has continued the good work within the company to ensure that Site Managers meet their responsibilities, although in some areas this has met with some resistance with some managers still failing to complete weekly document returns. Most Managers have achieved carrying out risk assessments & reviews on existing risk assessments as well as producing Method Statements which in the past was lacking.
