Social Distanced Safety Stand Down

In order to ensure communication with the workforce is greater than ever, The Broadway project in Westminster held its usual six weekly safety stand down, with a difference. The floor was marked out with 2m distanced squares, by the logistics team and only supervisors/managers were asked to attend. The Project Director thanked all supervisors for their hard work and encouraged them to support with ensuring the social distancing safety on site at all times.

He reminded everyone that this is the time to be vigilant on all aspects of Health and Safety on site as we are further away from people, and working with a reduced number. He urged everyone to take the time to stop and consider things, be innovative and challenge to ensure that we do things in the best way during these unprecedented times. Supervisors were asked to take this message to their teams and pass it on the thanks to all the workforce.

Four Awards were given out to operatives and supervisors who had worked tirelessly with senior management to get the site ready, and for providing suggestions on how we can best adapt, so that workers could return whilst adhering to social distancing rules. An honesty award was also given out, for handing in lost property, reminding everyone that this is a key time to support each other.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
