Our aspiration is to drive excellent standards and performance to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all our people. We achieve this by seeking to:
- Deliver the essentials very well.
- Demonstrate leadership.
- Communicate performance.
- Engage all our people
Our strategy is underpinned by four key areas of continuous improvement which are fully integrated into our business planning processes:
Identify and deliver strategies focused on performance visibility and communication that will allow the business to identify and understand the key trends, common factors and underlying root causes and to utilise this knowledge to drive systemic and sustainable improvement to both our health, safety and wellbeing performance.
Put simply – we seek to learn and improve at every opportunity
Review our organisational structures and activities to ensure that they are effective at delegating accountability and delivering performance throughout all levels of the business.
Support our people in the execution of their roles and responsibilities by providing clear expectations, skills and competence development and effective performance management and support.
Put simply – we ensure our people our competent, confident and capable
We will review our occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) to identify its fitness for purpose at providing a clear and systemic means of translating regulatory, legislative and group company health and safety policies and expectations into defined policies, standards and procedures which are readily available for all colleagues and partners.
We will ensure that our tools and techniques are simple, communicated and accessible and provide efficient and effective means to support our OHSMS and performance improvement.
Put simply – we provide clear frameworks for our people to think health and safety first across all our activities.
We operate a significant number of reservoirs, water treatment, waste water treatment, energy generation facilities, pumping stations, water distribution and sewerage networks and work closely with our Engineering Reliability, Operational, Asset Management and Asset Delivery teams to understand and reduce the asset based impacts on our health and safety.
Put simply – we focus strongly on personal health and safety and the process safety of our operational assets and infrastructure.
