As part of our ongoing commitment to HSQE, Raymond Brown run an annual Health & Safety Initiative Competition within the business. This scheme is designed to encourage staff to come up with new incentives and ideas which will further improve health & safety across the company.
This year, a total of eight entries were submitted, and in deciding on a winner, the directors decided to select the entry that would have the most significant impact on the business.
The winner was Simon Spurgeon, quarry manager, who came up with the idea for a Daily Pre-shift Safety Brief / Daily Handover Shift Brief. The idea is for this two-way form of communication to take place at the start of every working day and highlight any safety issues, near misses, site conditions, activities, visitors due, safety alerts, personnel issues, site improvements and plant. It was thought that the introduction of these briefings will be of great benefit to the business as it expands and as a number of sites start to operate multiple shift working patterns.
Simon was awarded with a £1,000 cheque by Lee Thompson, operations director for putting the proposal forward for his idea. The board of directors would like to congratulate Simon on winning and thank everyone who participated.
