Winning the prestigious Make UK award for Health, Safety and Well-being at the organisation’s Manufacturing Awards, Cleveland Bridge was commended on its work to further safeguard the physical and mental health and safety of its employees.
Working with an external, best-practice safety consultancy, Cleveland Bridge has developed a bespoke, in-house behavioural safety training programme dedicated to improving employee well-being.
The comprehensive course was delivered to all Cleveland Bridge employees, over a period of five months with the aim of embedding safety consciousness into everybody’s daily behaviour, so that working safely, identifying potential risks and taking action to address them, becomes second nature.
The training programme is said to have resulted in several key initiatives including more visible communications about health, safety and well-being.
Chris Droogan, Managing Director of Cleveland Bridge, said: “Health and safety are critical to us and we are committed to maintaining and improving our employee health and well-being.
“We are very proud that our new Behavioural Safety Charter has already been recognised by the manufacturing industry and our commitment to recognising the importance of challenging attitudes and behaviours across the business.”
