KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE

KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE EVERY DAY Safety, health and wellbeing COVID-19 Over the past 12 months and through the COVID-19 pandemic, we have remained very focussed on the safety, health and wellbeing of our staff, sub-contractor partners and customers. At the end of March, as a responsible business, we took the decision to close our offices and sites, to ensure the safety of our people, customers and communities we work with. Everyone’s health and safety has been our top priority throughout, and we have worked strictly in line with Government guidance and industry best practice from the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and Home Builders Federation (HBF). With the UK Government’s encouragement to restart, we started planning our phased reopening, always prioritising people’s health and safety and not asking anyone who is vulnerable or who felt unsafe to return to work. As lockdown continued to be eased, we put plans in place to re-open our offices for people who are unable to work from home and for essential face to face meetings. We re-opened our sales centres and show homes in mid-May on an appointment only basis (later in Scotland) in line with Government & HBF advice and with all the safety measures and social distancing guidelines in place. Throughout this period, we undertook: Health and safety performance We are committed to continually improving our processes and performance to ensure efficiency and optimal outcomes. Our HSS management system and key processes such as the pre-qualification of sub-contractors, inductions, training, incident recording and reporting are managed through contemporary platforms and technology. This has also proved invaluable in the fight against COVID-19, preventing contact between people and reducing the risk of infection transfer. • As such, we continue to improve our performance, based against last year, across a number of Health and Safety KPIs including: • Lost Time Injuries: down by 6% • Utility strikes: down by 16% • Director’s safety visits: increased by over 50% Enforcement authority intervention The Health & Safety Executive visited our sites unannounced on 3 sites compared to 8 last year and took no enforcement action. In recognition of our performance we were awarded the Gold Award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). • 1,249 COVID-19 inspections • 14,704 COVID-19 inductions covering all the controls in place specifically dealing with COVID-19 infection transfer, social distancing and hygiene. 52 KEEPMOAT.COM
