FINALIST SAFER TOGETHER
Brett has sites which are spread over a wide geographical area and it can be challenging therefore to share consistent messages and best practice across all the sites, particularly whilst operating during a pandemic.
Brett established a Quarterly Training Group (QTG) to raise and promote SHE understanding, standards and behaviours across all Brett Aggregates sites and support teams The QTG comprises site supervisors (from aggregates and asphalt), lead drivers from the transport team and technical representatives from right across all of Brett Aggregates. A typical agenda for the QTG would consist of a short business update, a guest speaker on something related to SHE and then practical exercises around creation of toolbox talks (TBT’s) and interrogating Brett procedures to ensure they are fit for purpose.
The QTG develop and create their own materials which are then presented and shared when back on their sites, a record is kept of this.
To supplement this the ‘Pride in Plant’ concept was introduced in late 2020 and has since run throughout 2021 and will now be an ongoing agenda item. The principle was simple, as Brett employees could not do so much together, they focussed on what could done independently on the sites to help achieve continual safety improvements?
Each site was challenged to make small health and safety driven improvements that they could affect themselves without the need for big budgets that collectively would make a big difference.
