Improving practices on site

It is important to be vigilant of practices undertaken on site.

Improvements can only be made if the current methods and attitudes are identified, to learn from any areas of concern or best practice evident on site.

Below is an example of how sites can become more vigilant to behaviours on site:

  • Go Cams (Miniature Personal Video Cameras) were fitted to volunteer workforce PPE for 1 hour sessions;
  • This provided ‘Operatives Eye View’ material for review and training purposes allowing visual identification of the effectiveness of the processes in operation;
  • The camera can also be fitted to plant and machinery to help promote an understanding to the workforce of the various hazards and challenges faced in a particular role;
  • It highlighted best practice and concerns or improvements that may not have otherwise been recognised or reported.

These cameras provided management teams with an insight into the behaviours that can be detrimental to Health and Safety, allowing sites to be proactive in counteracting these issues by providing adequate training and toolbox talks.
