Steel decker reaches safety landmark
Skanska UK specialist steel decking company Richard Lees, has notched up one million accident-free man hours.
The company said this statistic has been achieved despite its workforce being employed on some of the most demanding environments in UK construction.
Mark Kelly, Environmental Health & Safety Manager at Richard Lees, said: “We work on all manner of projects from high-rise office developments to small mezzanine floors. But, whatever the size and complexity, there’s an inherent risk.”
The recent achievement follows a sustained health and safety drive at the company. This included the introduction of safety netting as the default method of fall arrest for operatives working at height during the installation of decking systems.
