We would like to congratulate four of our staff for recently completing Site Safe Supervisor Gold Card training. As well as helping with proactively managing safety on site, the two day course covered accident investigation and hazard analysis. This extends our existing capabilities in this area and ensures that our project managers are fully up to speed with the latest safety management methods and processes.
The company is also pleased to announce the rollout of Safety Manager throughout the business. Training begins at the end of April and we expect to have the system fully operational by the end of May. A dedicated project team has been set up to migrate the existing paper based system into Safety Manager. This software will enable us to report incidents directly into the system via a tablet app from the field, with follow up investigation reports and corrective actions also being stored within the system. It also provides a repository for training records, hazard analysis and other compliance information as well as providing a tool for the creation of job safety analyses.
Safety Manager enables us to demonstrate compliance with new health and safety legislation and ACC programme requirements, all in line with our goal of becoming ACC Tertiary accredited and positioning ourselves as a low risk, self-managing contractor”.
