On Tuesday 24th April B&D’s Auckland based staff celebrated 2 years with no Lost Time Injury (LTI), in fact at the time of the BBQ, the day count stood at 804.
The lunchtime BBQ was a great way to recognise and reinforce our efforts in keeping each other safe in and around the B&D Auckland site.
Employee participation is critical to our journey towards zero harm so celebrating important milestones such as two years without a significant injury to a staff member is important in keeping our safety culture positive and effective. (Our Christchurch site currently stands at 547 days LTI Free.)
The BBQ was also an opportunity to present certificates to members of our Health and Safety Committee who had successfully completed NZQA Safety Courses that covered the Roles & Responsibilities of a Health and Safety Representative, Incident Investigation, Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Procedures in the Workplace – all highly important skills that help our company maintain/manage safety on a daily basis.
Our thanks to Nerissa for organising, Joe for his expert cooking, and to everyone else for their continued focus on keeping each other safe!
