One Culture – Target Zero.
We do not compromise when it comes to Health & Safety. Our aim is to be the recognised leader in Health & Safety in our sector.
Through a range of communications programmes and targeted training initiatives we are working hard to achieve our Target Zero goal: zero accidents and zero ill health caused by work.
Health Like Safety
Through our Health Like Safety programme, we are committed to promoting healthier lifestyles for all and helping our people to manage their own health effectively.
At Carillion, health is just as important as safety.
Don’t Walk By (DWB)
We actively encourage everyone to play their part in ensuring that we’re among the safest companies in our industry sectors. Our “Don’t Walk By” programme enables everyone – not just Carillion people, but customers, sub-contractors and suppliers, too – to identify and challenge unsafe acts and conditions, and to suggest improvements.
The Don’t Walk By programme has proven successful not only in raising important issues but also in creating a Health & Safety culture of openness and awareness, where people working at all levels of the business have the confidence to speak out and get involved in ensuring that issues are effectively resolved.
Taking road safety seriously
While the risk of a road accident can never be totally removed, by taking road safety seriously, the possibility can be significantly reduced. In 2016 we launched our ‘ONE Road to Safety’ campaign – which aims to keep our people safer on the road – through driver training along with education and awareness programmes.
Managing Health & Safety
We have well-established policies and systems in place to manage Health & Safety, including applying 14 leading and lagging indicators within rigorous risk frameworks to monitor and improve performance.
All contracts are regularly assessed for Health & Safety risks and senior managers conduct site tours where they proactively review and discuss Health & Safety issues with people at all levels.
We operate a popular telephone-based reporting system for all health, safety and environmental accidents and incidents – known as AIRline.
All our businesses have formal Health & Safety management systems, and we are proud that we continue to be certified to BS OHSAS 18001 across our UK and Middle East/North Africa (MENA) regions.
Our management systems are supported by a Group-wide policy aimed at Behaving Safely, implemented through awareness-raising campaigns and formal training.
