Same 3 Checks for Safety

Staying vigilant through change

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve explored how existing processes and Sodexo’s 3 Checks for Safety are still as relevant as ever, even with new ways of working becoming the norm.

We’re all juggling responsibilities in the new normal, however, we already know that when more people are aware of, highlight and deal with hazards and near misses the less likely that accidents are to happen.

One of Sodexo’s back to basics preventatives are Safety Walks which support our zero-harm culture and encourage positive safety conversations and behaviours.

This year’s Have a Safe Day Awards have seen the Diageo contract team commended for their work in creating an interactive toolkit that puts you in the shoes of a virtual Safety Walk. The toolkit educates what near misses and hazards to look out for as well as highlights the importance of reporting them.

This week we’re encouraging everyone to use this toolkit. It is vital we all stay vigilant and know how to spot and report near misses and hazards to reduce the opportunity for potentially harmful accidents to occur.

Speak to your line manager or H&S lead to find out how to access the toolkit and keep on top of your safety game.

Don't skate on thin ice

Over the festive period, did you check your mulled wine wasn’t too hot to drink? Or take a trolley to pick up the big Christmas food shop, instead of straining to carry a heavy basket? These are simple risk assessments we all make in everyday life to keep ourselves and others safe. Yet we sometimes forget to apply the same at work and keep up-to-date with crucial HSEQ changes.

 
Festive 5 Elf
 

Mental ‘elf’ comes first

In December 2020, we encouraged everyone to put their mental ‘elf’ front and centre by taking part in Festive 5 – our regional festive Stop Hunger fundraiser. With your support, the activity collectively raised more than £2,700 that will go towards helping those most vulnerable within our local communities.

Back to work but feeling a bit out of sorts? It can take a while to get back into a work routine after a break, but be sure not to let safety take a back seat and help us to avoid the January 'bruise'.
