Safety Week 2019 - Don't Walk By

Ahead of our annual Safety Week, we have commissioned a film that will raise the importance of challenging unsafe practice in the workplace.

The three minute-long clip is centred around the poignant poem entitled ‘I Chose to Look the Other Way’ by Don Merrell. It will be delivered to our employees as part of a series of clips to highlight the importance of health and safety at work.

“We all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and our colleagues safe and we hope that this film will highlight to our employees the importance of health and safety in the workplace.

“We want to encourage our teams to act if they see any unsafe practice or activity, giving them the confidence to intervene, if safe to do so. This mind-set can help prevent accidents from happening and will help create a safer place workplace for everyone”.

Douglas McLuckie, Director of Risk at A-Plant 

Safety Week takes place 25-29th November across the whole company. The event emphasises health and safety in the workplace, with particular focus on employees individual responsibilities and reflecting on safety performance overall.

Over the course of the week, sessions and videos will highlight the importance of individuals looking after their own Health and Safety, and that of their colleagues, by intervening with unsafe practices when seen and offering support to those who need it.
