Unfortunately we suffered our first TRI of the year last week after 7 weeks injury free. We must use this incident as a reminder that we cannot take Health & Safety for granted. Commented Jesus, UK President: “We must stay vigilant 24/7 to keep our employees and contractors safe. In particular slips, trips and falls continue to be our number one cause of accidents. We must put Safety into Action by implementing our Safety Essentials – Get a Grip, STOP and THINK when we start a new task, and STEP IN if we see an unsafe behaviour.”
Sadly, there was a TRI when one of our IHCs lost his grip as he climbed down the ladder at the back of his truck mixer. As he fell he caught himself on the catch of a mobile compressor, suffering a long graze and breaking the skin in several places. Please remember to “Get a Grip” and take care when using ladders, always use three points of contact.
