Contractors Vital To Our Safety Success

Cluster 7 held a Contractor Safety Day last week with various topics covered from Permit to Work, Inductions, Lock Off- Tag Off, Up to date Training, MYSPACE, Manual Handling, Recent Safety Alerts, Step In and The Dangers of Dust. 

“Although a very important topic the actual face fit testing was very entertaining!  Paul Young from P Young Site Services is in the photo modeling the testing equipment,” commented Roger Taylor, Cluster 7 Ops Supervisor.

“We had excellent discussions on the hazards at our Plants like the recent tipper roll-overs, the importance of a pre-work meeting if more than one contractor is working on the site at the same time, asset damage etc. It was very refreshing to see just how much information we gained from our contractors as well as what we were offering them. This tells me our Safety Culture in Cluster 7 is very healthy.

If we are to get to our target of Zero Harm then the partnership we have with our contractors is key and these workshops are a real leap forward in our journey.

Thanks to everyone who took part.”
