PHD’s Annual Health & Safety Seminar 2018
PHD held its annual health and safety seminar at Brunel University in Uxbridge for all employees. The Seminar was held to communicate our expected standards in Health, Safety & Wellbeing; our operational goals for continuous improvement and to share PHD’s exciting strategy for the future.
The seminar was an opportunity to reinforce our company standards and culture whilst also keeping our staff abreast of best practice in the industry. Furthermore it was a chance to obtain feedback from our key people on the ground on how we can continue to improve together as a business.
Over 100 of our scaffolders attended the seminar, which was a fantastic turnout. Each attendee was issued a PHD branded holdall bag, re-usable aluminium water bottle, lanyard, jumper and a PHD protein bar to keep them going.
The seminar was introduced by PHD’s Managing Director Danny Dwyer before our HSEQ director, Olly Mansell, gave a thought provoking Health and Safety talk embedding the importance of maintaining safety always and recapping on PHD’s ‘First Alert’ incident reporting procedures.
Harry Borley, one of our in-house safety advisors, then discussed the importance of good health and gave advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle before offering blood pressure checks at the blood pressure monitoring station for all operatives.
The mood was lightened with a Health & Safety quiz and a tea break before guest speaker, Mark Blackburn, gave an in-depth workshop about SG4 standards.
PHD then held our annual awards and the winners were as follows:
