Health Safety Focus Fortnight Week 2

Health & Safety Focus Fortnight
Here at The Kerfoot Group we have come to the end of our Health & Safety Focus Fortnight, what a great two weeks it’s been!
We’ve had fire safety awareness and feedback on our mock evacuation from the previous week. The guys in our factories had some training on moving the load – from manual handling through to fork lift trucks – it covered the appropriate techniques and equipment to use for all sorts of situations.
The highlight of the week though was our Emergency situation, a mock-up of an accident on site and what we would need to do in those situations. We hope they never occur but we need to be prepared if they do, but carrying out the exercises will help to eliminate the risks as well by raising everyone’s awareness of the potential hazards and the consequences if things go wrong.
A big thank you to Dave Walker, H&S Officer and Danielle Tweddle, HR Advisor for all their hard work in preparing and delivering all the events along with support from the rest of the People Division. Also a big thank you to our employees across all sites who got involved and were really engaged in the exercises making them the success they were. We’re getting lots of feedback about what people enjoyed and found informative so we can develop this initiative further for 2017!
