TITLE
Contractors safety seminar
ARTICLE
Tarmac Topmix Midlands was particularly concerned about the communication between management and contractors and so set about arranging an annual Contractors Safety Seminar.

The first included a presentation from the management team on the company’s policies and procedures in terms of health, safety and environmental issues and how these affect the role of the contractor.

The agenda was as follows:
? Golden Rules video
? Site specifics, which included issues like signing in / out and parking; levels of PPE; risk assessments; isolation procedures; permit to work; safety signs and site hazards
? Toolbox talks, starting with details of a fatality at a company contracting site
? Near Hits reported to the business from contractors and employees
? The new award-winning video “Once too often Dave”
? Open discussions about the presentation, policies and procedures that they were being asking them to perform.
