FROM THE EDITOR:

WELCOME TO OUR LATEST NEWSLETTER FOR 2017!

The weeks leading up to Christmas are traditionally a high risk period for the construction industry with an increase in the number of serious incidents and near misses occurring on site. Everyone needs to ensure their supervisory staff is especially vigilant at this time of year to ensure site safety. It is more important than ever to take that extra five minutes reviewing and re enforcing safe work method statements, procedure or other processes developed to complete our work in a safe manner. But most of all we need everyone to focus on what they are doing to ensure we do things safely. As the weeks count down to the Christmas shut down with a big year behind us , fatigue also can be a factor as the extra hours on the job inevitably rise . Don’t let the pressure to complete work cause you to make an error of judgement and allow short cuts to be taken even if it’s only a five minute job. Be focused. Be safe.

Have a safe and enjoyable Christmas with your loved ones.

Regards,
