PriDE manages Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s South East Regional Prime Contract (SE RPC). Valued at around £380m, the SE RPC is one of five regional prime contracts currently in place in the UK.
PriDE held its first contract-wide STOP! for Safety day on 14 June, with all managers and site teams getting out and about on site for a hazard spotting exercise. Operatives and staff were encouraged to complete hazard spotting forms, and 33 reports were sent in from one site alone! Some spots were simply a matter of clearing up debris and tidying kit, which could be actioned immediately, whilst others posed more of a risk to workers, such as insufficient PPE or working with incorrect ladders.
The day was a great success, and achieved its aim of highlighting the importance of identifying potential dangers and removing them. The reports will now be collated and discussed at the first PriDE Safety Forum management meeting, due to take place soon.
