Roger Bullivant is a leading foundation engineering company specialising in the design and construction of foundations for all types of buildings and structures. They operate in a tough commercial environment where margins are very small, and hazards are constantly present for the workforce.
The previous owners had an attitude of “can do, just get the job done”, with commercial concerns being the main focus. In one year, eleven employees were injured and the number of incidents was increasing. New owners took over and the senior leadership team wanted to deliver a transformational change reflecting their vision of “No Harm to Anyone”; they set themselves a goal to achieve 12 months’ operation with a turnaround performance, without a major incident or any injuries.
The HSE Director said, “I decided I had to be relentless in changing mindsets, my principle driver and belief being no harm to our people; I had the enthusiasm but identified that not everyone had the same attitude, belief and commitment.”
W2 was commissioned to help support and facilitate this ambition and turnaround project.
Our improvement in health and safety has been a tremendous journey over the last two years, and it has taken great commitment from everyone to reach this milestone.
W2 made recommendations for the contents of a focused safety survey within our organisation, followed up by a clear and focused training and personal development programme for every employee within RBL
Having helped us develop the plan, they then delivered it with some very talented and capable facilitators. Their feedback and follow-up procedures were excellent.
Their pursuit of excellence with all of the activities they undertook for us was relentless and continues to be so.
Very professional and interesting
W2 staff were great
It really surprised me to have enjoyed it as much as I did. Facilitators made it an interesting experience and promoted good discussion
