DESCRIPTION

Slips and trips are recognised as the greatest causes of incidents and are top of the ‘near misses’ submitted across the Group.

A multi-faceted approach was taken to eliminate these types of incident. In addition to the traditional tool-box talk, the company ensured that its behavioural SHE system concentrated on slips and trips throughout January and SHE alerts were issued across all businesses.

The main thrust was a poster campaign involving Brett people carrying out best practice with appropriate and highly relevant tag lines and images used, along with the key messages of ‘hold on’, ‘tidy up’, ‘look out’ and ‘don’t slip up’.

The poster campaign was very successful, particularly at engaging the workforce and as a result, a similar campaign for 2010 for musculoskeletal injuries is planned.

BENEFITS

Everyone had a heightened awareness of the issue of slips and trips and was engaged by the campaign

The campaign significantly contributed to the company gaining their first RIDDOR free year in 2009.
