Collaborative Safety Initiative
As a collaborative safety initiative, AmcoGiffen worked with Network Rail, Story Contracting Limited, QTS Group, and BAM Nuttall Ltd, to deliver several ‘Learning from Events’ safety stand downs last week.
Taking place across all of our Scotland and London North East Network Rail sites, our SHEQ representatives delivered interactive presentations designed to reinforce the importance of safe performance, and equip our teams with the confidence and tools to challenge unsafe practices and behaviours.
Focusing primarily on working at height from the back of vehicles, along with plant/people interfacing, we discussed how to apply the principles of prevention to eliminate, reduce, isolate and/or control risk.
Speaking about past incidents, near misses and close calls, we were able to concentrate on ensuring that all those involved in safety-critical working can learn from these events.
