Health & Safety

LONDON 2012 OLYMPIC PARK

The success of the London 2012 Olympic Games period is firmly engraved in UK history and rightfully acknowledged worldwide but it did have equal success in the construction of what was at the time the largest single project under construction in Europe. High profile projects such as cost and programme were regularly scrutinized and reported by the media but to be part of a project where Health & Safety facts are now being seen as the envy of our industry is justifiably rewarding. The project peaked at over 7,000 people on site and our contribution to those numbers was 110. The H&S facts are that the project did not have a single fatality and we feel justifiably proud to be part of that success.

“As a key partner in the delivery of the AWE Major Project Programme Wingate has played an important role in assisting us achieve a world class Health and Safety performance. Their Company Leadership, safe working practises and pro-active approach to achieving new levels of Health and Safety performance in the Construction Industry have helped the AWE Major Project Programme achieve four successive British Safety Council Sword of Honour successes. A great company with exceptional people”. 
Andy McCluskey Head of Construction Environment – AWE – Safety and Health

MAKE IT SAFE MAKE IT HOME

Makeitsafemakeithome

We acknowledge that nothing can guarantee a project will experience a completely clean record of a near miss, an incident or accident – however, what we can do is train and prepare our people to understand that it is their behaviour towards Health & Safety that counts.

Our campaign ‘Make it Safe – Make it Home’ is built on the foundation of our Incident & Injury Free (IIF) Behavioural Safety Programme. Our key issues are:

Training

Each individual’s skill base delivers knowledge and Behavioural Safety awareness. This responsibility puts this training into practice.

Make it Safe

‘Make it Safe’ is based on training, competence and responsibility.

Commitment

Through our structure we are committed to implementing and maintaining our comprehensive H&S Management System, which is accessible to all employees.

Leadership

We provide training and expect our employees at all levels to demonstrate initiative and exercise leadership.

Duty of Care

The objective of the Procedures we have in place is to ensure that everyone exercises Duty of Care morally and legally.

Achievement

To go home safely, knowing that the work we have carried out has provided our colleagues with the opportunity to leave their workplace accident/incident free.

Competence

Competence is the minimum expected of all our employees and Behavioural Safety is a vital part of our culture.

Our Management and Operatives receive regular in-house and external safety training and have a minimum of CSCS/ECS, SMSTS and SSSTS certification. Where necessary, our employees attend specialist safety courses to suit their discipline or specific project requirements.

Our policy is to ensure that all operatives are technically approved and competent to carry out the tasks assigned to them.
