Safety Reboot 2022 Resources

CEF has released resources for the month long health & safety initiative, Safety Reboot, taking place throughout January 2022. The aim of the initiative is to encourage construction companies to stop work for about 15 minutes, once a week throughout January, to take time to focus on key areas of health and safety.

Resources on eight topics, developed by the CEF Health and Safety committee last year, have been reviewed and updated where required and remain available as they cover key areas of construction health and safety.  Question packs and discussion aids on three new topics- asbestos, respirable crystalline silica and underground services have also been developed to increase the scope of the initiative.

The resources should be used to start conversation and interaction between the workforce on issues that they encounter every day on site. Of course given the ongoing Covid 19 circumstances, it is essential that social distancing is observed during any stoppage.

Companies are encouraged to get involved and to use these short stoppages as a time for staff to really engage with each other on the important topics.

Don't forget the use the hashtag #SafetyReboot to share images and updates on how your company gets involved throughout Janaury. This is a great opportunity to showcase how seriously construction companies in Northern ireland take the health and safety of their workforces.
