TITLE  
Programme of improvements
ARTICLE
Following a thorough re-assessment of all procedures, Tarmac Northern’s Concrete and Mortar North division made a raft of improvements to ensure site assured competency. These include:
• employing only approved contractors
• developing up-to-date site specific and generic risk assessments and safe systems
• re-structuring the department and creating a team leader role: now team leaders, operations
coordinators and a transport supervisor report to operations managers
• making planned plant closures for maintenance
• creating a manual used by all staff that demonstrates the procedures for compliance and safety
assurance during maintenance work
• expanding training programmes and modules and putting all operational staff back through the
induction process.
