Shared Values on Safety Form Part of New ‘Make It Safe’ Vision
17 Sep 2018
Our Make It Safe logo was introduced in 2017 and has helped to drive and reinforce an increased focus on Health and Safety. To build on this we have developed our Make It Safe Vision that will see all our businesses working to achieve excellent H&S performance and continuing our target of zero harm to colleagues, visitors and contractors.
Three key objectives have been set to enable us to meet our challenging new vision:
1 – Operate an effective health and safety management system
2 – Effectively control significant risks
3 – Continually improve the health and safety culture
1 – Operate an Effective Health and Safety Management System
Over the next three months we will be rolling out our new Make It Safe Audit programme. The audits will identify any improvements we need to make to ensure our health and safety management system is effective and driving continual improvement.
2- Effectively Control Significant Risks
We are currently working to ensure we have a good understanding of our health and safety risks so we can prioritise our efforts on our most significant hazards. We have already identified workplace transport as a top priority and we will be launching a project at all sites during September.
3 – Continually Improve the Health and Safety Culture
Culture and shared values on the importance of H&S are key elements of our Make It Safe Vision. However, our initial focus will be on developing our management systems and improving control of our significant risks.
Mark concluded; “This is a full team effort and everyone will need to play their part in making B&P an even safer place to work. Over the coming months there will be opportunities for all our colleagues to get more involved and these will be communicated through briefings or training as required.”
“As the group grows and flourishes it is important that our approach to H&S continues to improve and evolve. I shall look forward to working with our teams across the UK and to deliver exemplary standards as we strive to achieve our Make It Safe Vision and Objectives.”
