Joe Hudson, CEO, Ibstock PLC
Here at Supreme Concrete we believe in "the 12 fundamentals" – the main points on which our health and safety policies are built. It is aimed at promoting a culture of safety awareness amongst our employees and highlights how best practice can keep our staff safe.
We often hold health and wellbeing events across our sites, which include free and confidential health check-ups as well as advice on nutrition and fitness and form part of the health and wellbeing programme currently running across Ibstock PLC.
The 12 fundamentals were adopted several years ago to minimise the risks in undertaking hazardous activities where both employees and contractors have historically been injured, and these are:
- Risk assessment
- Mobile plant and pedestrian safety
- Isolation of operating machinery
- Machine guarding
- Confined spaces
- Working from height
- Lifting operations
- Manual handling
- Pressure vessels
