Interserve sites embark on ‘safety stand down’ event

INTERSERVE Construction offices and sites have participated in a global safety stand down to highlight workplace safety.

Employees, members of the supply chain and customers stood down on sites and offices across the globe to come together for HSE briefings and workshops.

Regional director Cameron Stewart explained, “The health, safety and welfare of our workforce is extremely important to Interserve and it is pivotal that we send every member of our team home unharmed every day. Today, Interserve have held safety stand downs across the globe to ensure that there is a constant focus on safety at work.

“I was at our Scottish National Gallery site today speaking to the workforce about spatial awareness. It is essential to take time out and remind everyone involved on our projects how important it is to remain aware of our surroundings and to remind them of the things we can do when planning work activities to ensure our sites are as safe as possible.

“We have introduced a simple SLAM message to our workforce; stop, look, assess and manage. The team were really engaged and we look forward to more events like this going forward.”
