Health & Safety
At Advance, health and safety is our number one priority. We are committed to a safety culture in the workplace that drives our actions, our culture and our communication. We are consistently taking steps in order to reduce the number of accidents and incidents in the workplace and on site through regular communication of industry information, HSE updates, company policies and a thorough review of procedures.
Improved workplace safety requires a concerted effort from everyone within the industry and we work closely with clients, candidates and employees to align ourselves with industry initiatives that will help to enhance everyone’s perception and actions.
Our Health and safety Management system is OHSAS 18001 accredited and we have a Quality Management System that is ISO 9001 accredited. These systems include very clear guidelines on our approach to managing important aspects of the daily working environment such as working hours, fatigue, stress and accidents and incidents.
Advance has also achieved APSCo accreditation through a stringent qualification process that involved numerous references from professional candidates and clients. This allows us to remain fully informed of all changes to industry legislation and maintain current contractual documentation at all times.
Behavioural Based Safety
Behavioural Based Safety seeks to challenge the behaviour of the workforce by changing the attitudes of the workforce with effective leadership and employee engagement. It’s a bottom-up safety approach that encourages a working environment where people are comfortable looking after one another and are able to report close calls without the fear of reprisals.
Behavioural based safety is about the behaviour of the whole workforce not just frontline staff. For us to truly reduce the number of incidents to zero, a concerted effort is required from ourselves, our clients and our workers to encourage a culture where safety is the first priority.
Advance has developed a bespoke way to assess and report on the perception of Behavioural Based Safety that allows us to work together to implement focused activities to raise awareness and improve peoples actions. Please contact our Operations Director, Paul Merton, if you wish to discuss this in more detail.
We produce a monthly safety communication that we send to all of our workers.
