How to improve safety culture & leadership in business

Date: 27/09/2021

A positive safety culture is an organisational mindset that places a level of importance on safety beliefs, values and attitudes. As these are shared by the majority of people within the company or workplace, it can often be characterised as ‘the way we do things around here’. A positive safety culture is key to the successful implementation of safe working practices and policies which not only improves the well-being of employees, but it can also minimise risk, promote productivity and improve organisational performance. In this blog we explore ways a leader can champion health and safety attitudes and behaviours within an organisation to improve safety culture and showcase the many benefits this can have as a result.

Date: 2/09/2021

They work to separate pedestrians and vehicles and protect users of an area from harm. However, with many different types of barriers available on the market, you may be wondering which option would be most appropriate for the needs of your project. In this blog, we compare the benefits of both steel barriers and flexible barriers and break down the applications they are best suited for to help you decide.

Safe reversing and spotting practices

Date: 18/08/2021

WorkSafe have recently put together a guide to encourage safe reversing and spotting practices. This guide offers practical advice on how you can manage the risks of reversing vehicles and mobile plants.

Reversing should always be eliminated where possible through good site design. Where reversing cannot be avoided, solutions such as mirrors, pedestrian walk-way barriers, reversing cameras, sensors, corner protection and high-visibility bollards can be used to ensure care is taken by drivers, pedestrians and visitors to site.
