Safety First bacon cobs second with this month’s Positive Intervention

PI-January-2016-Photo-2-for-webHere at Whitehouse, safety is of paramount importance to safeguard not only employees but members of the public. This has led us to implement an initiative to reward our staff who actively seek to make sites a safer place by reporting positive interventions.

This month’s bacon cobs were delivered to Chris Russell and Steve Dawson who were working on a splitter island at one of our Nottingham Cycle Way sites.

To accommodate both our workforce and passing traffic, narrow lanes were required, meaning wide loads had to pass our staff in close proximity, which led to a near-miss with a large HGV.

Chris and Steve both quickly raised their concerns with site manager Mark Maznenko, who immediately made changes to safeguard staff, general public and road users alike.

SHEQ Advisor Dan Donovan said: “This is a perfect example of how our Positive Intervention system works and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Chris and Steve for following our procedure to enhance safety for not only themselves but their colleagues”.

With photographic evidence present it is clear to see that Chris, Steve and the team thoroughly enjoyed their bacon butties.
