We recognise that the safety of everyone, is everyone’s responsibility. Our highway maintenance sites can often be long in length and dynamic in nature unlike many static construction sites, which introduces supervisory challenges.
In recognition that our staff play a key role in ensuring safety, we introduced our credit card sized ‘Be Safe – White Card’. This card has been issued to all employees within the business, from General Manager level to Apprentices, from senior leader to operatives.
Alongside the issues of the card was a series of briefings developed from our Health, Safety and Wellbeing strategy around the importance of always remaining vigilant to any unsafe working practices.
The card has a personal message from our Managing Director:
“Returning home safe to your family is the most important thing to me. This card gives you my direct authority to stop any activity that cannot be carried out safely and to assist in putting it right. Do the right thing – be safe.”
Signed by our Managing Director, the card gives everyone in the business, no matter what level they are at, the authority to stop any work activity. With a space on the back for employees to sign, just like a normal credit card, we see the card as another valuable tool to ensuring everyone stays safe on and around our worksites.
