CIF Construction Safety Week for 2021

GMC Utilities were delighted to participate again in the CIF Construction Safety Week for 2021. 

This year the topics covered included:

  • Drive Safe this Bank Holiday
  • Mind your Health
  • Work Safe at Height
  • Safe Lifting & Safe Plant
  • Managing Hazardous Energies

Each day of the week, GMC’s HSQE advisors met with crews to discuss each of the topics and to deliver a coaching / briefing session that provided information to help crews deal with these issues. 

The advice included how to identify problems, and how to safely address those problems. Personnel were encouraged to speak openly on these matters and were provided with advice and assurance that they could contact the HSQE team for any assistance on these topics.

Senior management at GMC attended some of these events and let attendees know that when it comes to Safety, it is the number one priority.
