Briggs & Forrester achieves clean sheet for accidents
Published: 02 March, 2017
Briggs & Forrester Group and its subcontracted workforce had no RIDDOR-reportable accidents in 2016. In excess of 7.4 million main hours were worked, continuing the trend of the last few years for growing project turnover, number of man hours worked and number of workers — all with a year-on-year reduction in accidents and lost-time injuries.
An accident frequency rate and accident incident rate of zero for RIDDOR-reportable accidents were achieved.
Steve Watson, the group’s health-and-safety manager, attributes this record to a number of factors. ‘We have introduced policies and campaigns that give greater responsibility for workplace safety to our teams on site, who know the job they are part of and the areas of potential risk.
‘Greater communication at all levels has been a driving factor— together with teamwork, engagement and appreciation of the needs of everyone involved. In our industry, there is always the potential for risk, but these fantastic results show that by working together we can lower that risk and keep more people safe.’
