Elecomm, one of the UK’s leading providers of mechanical, electrical, data, IT and facilities management services, have announced another excellent year for safety.
In recent years, the UK construction industry has taken huge strides in its efforts to reduce accidents and improve its safety record.
Elecomm, who work on many high-level, nationwide construction projects, have made health and safety their number one priority, and that commitment is certainly paying off.
In their end of year health and safety report, Elecomm reported that their direct employees had worked a total of 250,000 hours in 2020. This doesn’t include the many hours worked by subcontractors.
Elecomm believe in transparency and honesty in all health and safety matters, which in practice means that all accidents are reported, no matter how minor they seem.
Even with the huge number of hours worked and the emphasis on reporting all accidents, they saw an overall reduction in all accidents and lost time incidents.
HSQE Manager Carl McDonald commented:
‘Maintaining the highest standards of health and safety is always our number one concern across all projects. We constantly strive to identify and reduce risk, to protect our people as well as the communities we work in.’
As always, we will now set the bar even higher and strive for a positive open safety culture with a further reduction in all accidents.’
