Analysis of incidents showed that 62% of its dangerous occurrences and near misses involved mobile plant, particularly forklifts, a number of these whilst loading or unloading.
The company introduced a 'Gateway to SafeDay' project to promote a positive safety culture across the site and raise awareness of the hazards associated with workplace transport among employees, customers, hauliers, and contractors. The initiative involved employees at all levels of the business. A wide range of initiatives and actions were explored, developed, and implemented.
