TOOL and equipment hire company A-Plant has revealed a new video as part of a campaign for increasing health and safety awareness in work.
A-Plant Safety Week will take place this week between 25-29th November, across the whole A-Plant group. The event is to emphasise health and safety in the workplace, with particular focus on employees individual responsibilities and reflecting on safety performance overall.
Managers will carry out mandatory briefings, digital presentations and activities that include video clips produced for the initiative.
The three-minute-long clip is centred around the poem ‘I Chose to Look the Other Way’ by Don Merrell and will be delivered to A-Plant’s employees as part of a series of clips to highlight the importance of health and safety at work.
Douglas McLuckie, Director of Risk at A-Plant said: “We all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and our colleagues safe and we hope that this film will highlight to our employees the importance of health and safety in the workplace.
“We want to encourage our teams to act if they see any unsafe practice or activity, giving them the confidence to intervene, if safe to do so.
“This mind-set can help prevent accidents from happening and will help create a safer place workplace for everyone.”
