Health & Safety Focus – Training update
We hear too many horror stories of fatalities at work and so many of them involve vehicle or plant and machinery movement.
In 2014/15 over half the fatal injuries to workers in the UK were of 3 kinds: being struck by a vehicle, being struck by a moving object and falls from height.
Our divisions’ work is traffic heavy, whether it be our own, customer or supplier vehicles, or plant and machinery movements we have much to be wary of and to manage safely.
The Health & Safety Committee representatives agreed that every division should give traffic management the focus it deserves and to that end we have developed a ‘Traffic Marshal’ training course to be rolled out to each division.
Our colleagues at CT Cork & TBP Dublin have already earned their certificates & CTNI’s training is scheduled for late August/early September this year.
