Galliford Try and Morrison Construction have committed to support a new health, safety and well-being campaign for the infrastructure industry spearheaded by the Civil Engineering Contractors’ Association.
The focus of ‘Stop. Make a change’, as the campaign is titled, is the first ever UK-wide health and safety stand-down on 18 April. Sites, offices and production facilities will put work on hold to focus on how they can work together to build a healthier, safer industry. The campaign will address four key areas namely respiratory health, plant safety, fatigue and mental health. It is intended that the good practice developed will be shared among supporters through a guide published later this year.
“The thinking behind ‘Stop. Make a change’ closely matches our health and safety ethos so we’re very glad to be supporting it,” said Tom de la Motte, Managing Director of Galliford Try Infrastructure. “The breadth and depth of the sectors we work in and the geographical spread of our operations will enable us to add considerably to the impact of the campaign. If and when it subsequently develops to possibly encompass building as well then we’re obviously ideally placed to further expand our support and involvement too.”
