Safety Coach Initiative shortlisted for National Rail Award
Global Rail Construction’s Safety Coach Initiative – has been shortlisted by a panel of experts for the National Rail Safety Award.
As one of the most important National Rail Award categories, safety has always been high on both public and political agendas – and rightly so. Having been shortlisted the judges were clear on Global Rail Construction’s tangible commitment to improving safety.
Global Rail Construction’s Safety Coach initiative has been instigated as a long-term measure and is part of an embedded culture of practices to influence both employee and supply chain behaviours.
Just under a year ago, Global Rail Construction commenced its Safety Coaches initiative as part of its overall Behavioral Safety Management Programme. Safety Coaches are front line employees that act as the “Voice” and “Face” of the organisation. They are engaged and empowered to promote a culture of safety across all projects and provide the continued growth of our safety leadership team, values which are at the very heart of the business.
The next steps are to present to a further panel at the end of June, as Global Rail Construction look to further demonstrate their commitment to all railway stakeholders who come into contact with their day-to-day activities.
