CEF is calling on all members to get involved in a final push to support the Safety Reboot initiative running throughout January. Huge thanks to those that have got involved so far. Below are some of the images shared across social media this month.

Mark Spence, CEF Managing Director commented, “It’s been fantastic to see so many members supporting Safety Reboot so far since the start of the year. January is traditionally a time when we all take stock and set goals for the year ahead. Safety Reboot enables contractors to do this by engaging with their workforce to reinforce the importance of a number of different health and safety related topics. It would be great to see as many members as possible demonstrate their commitment to health and safety in the last week of January”.

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 the eleven topics listed below have been developed by the CEF Health & Safety Committee and are available here.

  • Working at height
  • Slips, trips & falls
  • Mobile plant & equipment
  • Mental Health
  • Occupational health (vibration, noise & dust)
  • Temporary works
  • Emergency procedures &fire safety
  • Asbestos
  • Respirable crystalline silica
  • Underground services

The question packs and discussion aids should be used to start conversation and interaction between the workforce on important health and safety 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.

Don’t miss out on the chance to highlight your involvement- share images of your company getting involved across social media using the hashtag #SafetyReboot
