The Health and Safety of our teams, the public and our customers is of the highest importance and as such, robust processes and procedures are in place and the regular training of our teams is carried out to reduce the risk of incidents and injuries. The next step in progressing Health and Safety within CALA is to embed a genuine safety culture.
CALA has launched a Health and Safety culture change programme, the general ethos of which is encapsulated in our new work code, ‘One Team, One Goal, Safe Home’.
The work code and culture change programme have been developed following an internal health and safety culture survey with CALA and subcontractor employees across the business.
The roll out of the new work code and culture change programme will involve a series of workshops for both CALA staff and contractors. These workshops are designed to raise awareness of how the whole team, regardless of department or role, can contribute to a positive safety culture and support in maintaining a high-level of standards for the team, the public and customers.
As an integral part of our team, we are inviting our contracting partners, to pledge their support to our new work code and to help us reinforce a positive safety culture across CALA sites. The active participation of our contractors, and their commitment to the principles of the programme thereafter, are essential to its success.
