Ground Control improve H&S auditing
Throughout 2017 there has been a continued push to ensure our teams are health and safety compliant with all aspects of work carried out for our clients. A major part of this is the Field Team Audits that are undertaken by our Contract Managers. In light of this, our audit sheet has been trimmed down and importance placed on behavioural safety. The stringent pass score along with weighted scoring ensures a concentrated focus on getting it right first time.
With the overall theme for 2017 being “Changing Hearts and Minds” towards health and safety, Roger Barron Health and Safety Manager for grounds maintenance, has been carrying out audit training with the Managers in each region following on from the building blocks training carried out earlier in the year.
Roger explained; “Over the past year we have been getting a wealth of audit information coming through from the Managers. Our Management Information Analyst, Javier, produces a weekly report to myself and HSQE Administrator, Claire, which allows us to interrogate and produce meaningful data available to the managers on a monthly basis”.
The audit training for Managers is a culmination of our enhanced reporting systems and witnessed audit inspections undertaken by myself and Operations Director, Graham Bird. This in turn will build a robust platform for briefings at the roadshows and ongoing into 2018.
With 50 percent of the audit training completed, results are already showing a more objective approach by our Managers compared to that at the witnessed inspections undertaken. We must remember that our clients are observing us and undertaking their own audits on a regular basis. We must ensure that we are fully compliant at all times.”
We don’t just offer superior service to our customers – we prove it! How much time and money is exhausted managing and monitoring your maintenance contractor?
