I look after the health and safety and well-being of the team overall, and that includes things like health and safety inductions, and making sure there are no hazards and risks in the offices. Then mainly I look after all our project site and produce all the health and safety paperwork required by law.
In addition, I coordinate with the site managers on a regular basis to make sure that our sites are risk and incident free.
We are very proactive toward health and safety. Rather than being the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, we much rather be the person at the top stopping any incidents from happening. We put a lot of effort into preventing any harm from happening to our trades and staff.
We are a low to medium risk company, our office is very low, and our sites are around medium risk.
The biggest thing that we can be doing is just to observe of what is happening on our sites and within the offices and communicate, again and again.
We are communicating health and safety and keeping it on top of everyone's mind; this way everyone is more likely to react in a safe manner.
We have gone from a very basic unit with minimal training to fully digitalize systems, allowing tracking and reporting of any danger in real time.
We do regular training on health and safety in particular with our site managers and project managers and we have safety wardens within all the offices that are trained mostly.
We have regular communication about health and weekly reporting from site on any hazards. It is in almost every meeting and our paperwork is fully compliant.
