Heat Stress. Know the facts.

Whilst we are blessed with such beautiful weather we must not forget to look after ourselves and each other.

Heat stress is very dangerous and you must ensure you take all reasonable steps to protect yourself, and others, from the extreme heat.

Please,

  • Avoid individual work, supervise each other and remain safe
  • Drink at least 2 litres of water every 2-3 hours during work. Avoid caffeinated beverages as they promote dehydration of the body
  • Protect your head at all times, wear your hard hat on site or a cap / hat if not site based

Remember – “Safety Starts With Me”

We recently reached a key milestone in our journey, where “Safety Starts with Me”. To celebrate this occasion, our Health and Safety Manager, Dylan Thompson (CMIOSH), has issued a statement:

“At Wilson & Scott our number one priority is the Health, Safety and Wellbeing of our employees, delivery partners and customers. We strive to ensure no one is harmed when using or working on the network, enabling everyone to return home safe and well to their families each and every day.

It is through our proactive approach to Occupational Health, Safety and wellbeing, that we are extremely proud to announce that we have completed over 2 Million hours of work without a RIDDOR reportable incident.

Whilst we manage Health Safety and wellbeing through our systems, policies, and procedures, it is delivered through a culture of visible leadership which is embraced by all. It is through the commitment and dedication of all our people and delivery partners that we pride ourselves in being leaders in Occupational Health and Safety.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our people for your commitment to not only your own health and wellbeing but of everyone around you and embracing our culture of ‘Safety Starts With Me’.”

 

A milestone achievement that all should be proud of!
