The Energetics Health and Safety Team hosted a series of Safety Stand Down Days for the operations and delivery teams working across Scotland and the North of England.
Health and Safety is paramount in the utilities and construction sector with the Safety Stand Down Days being just one of the many ways Energetics are engaging with suppliers, contractors, employees and stakeholders to ensure that this remains at the forefront of everyday activity.
The day is a combined HR and Health and Safety event and provides a great opportunity for the operations and delivery teams to learn about exciting new initiatives both within Energetics and across the wider utilities industry, as well as providing refresher training and updates on best practice.
Craig Boath, newly appointed Energetics Managing Director, welcomed the teams and reiterated the importance of safety within the workplace and across the utilities sector and highlighted why events such as these are significant to the business. He explained how Energetics are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing and safety of all employees and that there are specific policies, procedures and initiates in place to support staff, regardless of role or place of work.
The sessions throughout the day enabled attendees to review and re-engage with general H&S best practice, dynamic risk assessments, driver vehicle checks as well as introduce new shoring products, apps and internal processes.
John Robertson, Energetics Health and Safety Manager, deemed the stand down days a great success and thanked all of those involved in making the events possible.
