#SafetyReboot gets underway

Safety Reboot, the CEF’s month long health and safety initiative, has got underway and will continue throughout 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.

Members have started to get involved. Pictured above are staff from Combined Facilities Management (CFM) taking part in a Safety Reboot discussion at their mid Ulster depot in Castledawson earlier this week. Companies are encouraged to share images across social media using the hashtag #SafetyReboot.

Resources on eleven topics developed by the CEF Health & Safety Committee are available here. These include question packs and discussion aids on three new topic- asbestos, respirable crystalline silica and underground services.

The resources 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.
