2017/18 has been really busy for our safety team. They’ve ran the Children Safety Poster Competition for UK Safety Week and safety games during European Safety Week. They’ve also continued our Destination Zero Journey with Safety and Ergo training and Safety technical support.
As a result of all this hard work we’ve had three years of sustained continuous improvement for both First Time and Lost Time incident rates, making us the BEST safety performer across JLR Manufacturing UK.
This year the Safety team and the Safety Champions will be building on this success with plenty more activities, so be part of it and keep Halewood going on this Destination Zero Journey!
The Safety Team have started by hosting a Contractor’s Roadshow, Niall Ford (Press Shop Senior Manager), opened the event where he talked about the importance of having safety at the heart of everything we do.
During the event they talked about Destination Zero, JLR Policies, Contractor’s Risk Assessments, method statements, Contractors Hand Book and COSHH. Colleagues were able to raise queries, discuss procedures and each Contractor was given a copy of the JLR Safety Hand Book.
During the two shift period the safety team have also been running safety sessions with all colleagues from across Halewood. Giving a consistent message on why safety is so important and making sure we’re all on the right track to Destination Zero.
