To share information and decisions in a timely way, various internal communication processes are in place including the provision of dedicated HSE noticeboards in each branch (displaying material such as meeting minutes, safety alerts, learnings, lead/lag indicator, injury prevention initiatives) and internal paper and eCopy newsletters.
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, excellence in health and safety management and innovation by staff is formally recognised through the 'Safety Champion' programme. At each quarterly branch health and safety committee meeting; nominations are called for those employees who demonstrated safety excellence and innovation. Recipient names and details of their safety performance are recorded as part of the meeting minutes and relevant information forwarded to the HSEQ Team to organise a 'Safety Champion' certificate which is then presented to them by their line manager. Winners' details are also acknowledged in the internal company newsletters.
