TITLE  
One Goal vision - documenting and improving safety
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

Following the launch of the company’s ‘One Goal’ safety
initiative, the Aberthaw Plant Laboratory Team created a front
line application to apply in their area. Using Queen’s ‘One Vision’
combined with the football theme of ‘One Goal’ a method of
documenting and improving safety was created.

By recording safety concerns on sticky notes – attached to stands
for recording; actioning these concerns – sticky notes moved to
the goal mouth; and completing – sticky notes moved to the
back of the net guarded by Freddie Mercury, a visible means of
engaging with and improving safety was created.

The team meets weekly to review outstanding actions and any
other safety communications published during the week. Safety
documentation is also reviewed – STOPs, Near Misses, SOPs and
Risk Assessments. The programme will be rolled out to three other
departments by the year end.

BENEFITS

• Greater sense of ownership – the department has an
improved awareness of the company’s safety initiatives and
approaches

• With ownership of tasks, there is a greater drive to develop
tasks and see them through to completion

• Making a safer working environment.
