The fundamental driver of the ‘No More Excuses’ campaign is to kick start behavioural change in the way that health and safety (H&S) is prioritised by Speller Metcalfe staff and it’s sub-contract workforce.
While H&S is already taken incredibly seriously, they are striving towards the position where it is the first thought throughout their operations.
The campaign has been implemented through coordinated communications and behavioural initiatives to employees, the supply chain and clients focusing on the ‘No More Excuses’ tagline.
To drive behavioural change and H&S performance, the campaign has been accompanied by an overhaul of the current H&S audit system in order to better highlight non-conformance in H&S management; and better promote exemplary practice.
This is essentially a cultural shift in people’s behaviours and their perception of risk which seeks to enhance the potential within us all to lead by example.
There is much evidence to support the positive outcomes experienced when individuals are praised for displaying high levels of safety awareness and simply looking out for their fellow worker.
This is not just about challenging poor standards, it also about reinforcing the good which many of our sites already display.
Speller Metcalfe are aware that a number of staff have already received industry-wide training in techniques associated with behavioural safety and many of their regular supply chain members are well versed in it too. Those who are not so up to speed will be offered training in due course.
