Making Health & Safety a priority in every Industry
The HSE will be running a two month campaign to target Agricultural Sites following continued poor performances associated with the Industry. In 2017/18, thirty three people lost their lives, which is around 18 times higher than the all industry fatal injury rate.
PM PROjEN have helped a number of clients improve their SHE performance, particularly when assisting them with new projects by applying the norms used in the Construction Industry. PM PROjEN are also able to provide support with Risk Assessments, Training and help nurture the Health & Safety culture by completing workplace inspections and behavioural based safety training.
Lyndon Workman, HSE Manager for PM PROjEN commented, ‘Whilst the Agricultural Industry has made improvements, it still has some way to go to achieve the standards we see in the Construction sector. This is a journey that requires commitment from the top with better training and a step change in people’s behaviour, recognising the potential for harm in the workplace and the often simple controls that can be adopted to eliminate or reduce risk so far as is reasonably practicable’.
