Novus Property Solutions has delivered a two-day health and safety roadshow to over one thousand members of its staff, focusing on “Working at Height”.
Novus’ directors, regional managers and Health and Safety department teamed up with Paul Blanchard – a tradesman who fell from a roof in July 2010 and is now paralysed from the chest down – to design a hard-hitting workshop, held at eight separate locations across the country.
The roadshow was open to all Novus’ operational teams, strategic subcontractors and self-employed operatives as part of the company’s ongoing Target Zero Initiative, which encourages site staff to report any health and safety issues they see immediately.
Alan Nixon, director at Novus Property Solutions, commented: “We carry out over four million hours of activity on site each year and to some extent accidents are inevitable, but at Novus we make great efforts to give our employees the training, support, and control measures needed to eliminate risk in the workplace. This campaign hammers home the importance of each and every one of us taking personal responsibility for safety excellence.”
