Encouraging continuous improvement on site: Health and safety audit
Sites should actively seek to identify and implement methods to enable continuous improvement on site.
Best practice and innovations should be recognised and shared to encourage positive learning and the sharing of good ideas.
Below is an example of how a site has achieved this:
- The site commissioned a health and safety audit which was carried out by the British Safety Councils 5 star occupational Health and Safety audit, an independent body who audit all industries worldwide;
- The aim from site perspective was to: benchmark the site against other industries, identify good practice being carried out on site and to gain feedback on best practice being conducted from outside construction to enable on-going and continuous improvement;
- The site gained 3 stars and has implemented many additional actions since the BSC audit;
- There is a plan to roll out the learning and practices across the company on future sites.
