At United Plant, putting ‘safety first’, continues to be the prominent message across our business. As a service provider, operating on a national scale, it is vital we keep safety at the top of the agenda.
Therefore, this month, we are re-communicating strongly with our team, the significance of ‘Safety Gains’ within our business. This is simply any identified opportunity – from an employee – which could deliver a safety improvement. These gains may include:
✓ Identifying any hazard that exists
✓ Identifying any unsafe conditions
✓ Highlighting an unsafe event or a near miss that has occurred
✓ Identifying any potential or existing issues with the way we do things
✓ Identifying improvements that could be made in the way we do things to improve safety
Our philosophy is ‘fix before failure’. Through a ‘Safety Gain’ we can take proactive action before an incident may occur. Action can also help to protect others, as the gain often has a wider positive impact on other team members. Finally, it endorses the legal right to a safe workplace.
Being committed to safety is an ongoing responsibility and we acknowledge the importance of engaging our employees with a ‘safety first’ mindset, so that working practices are continually evaluated and improved because “safety doesn’t happen by accident.”
