Safety days

Safety initiatives should be promoted on site to encourage operatives to take responsibility and raise safety awareness.

Safety awareness days can be a great way of engaging with the workforce and making safety training fun and interesting.

Safety talks, workshops and exhibitions are all great ways to involve the workforce and reinforce specific safety subjects, such as ‘correct PPE’ or ‘road safety week.’

Examples of how sites have implemented safety days include:

  • The site manager arranged a series of talks and presentations by relevant suppliers to ensure that operatives were made aware of the latest PPE, footwear, eye and ear protection;
  • The site organised and hosted a safety day/exhibition whereby all suppliers to the project were invited to have a stand so that they could give out information and advice to attendees. All site operatives were given time and payment to attend the event.
