HEALTH & SAFETY
Creating a safe and healthy working environment is fundamental to MJ Church. We aim to ensure that none of our employees, contractors or the people who interface with our operations be injured or made unwell by the way we carry out our work.
New technology and practices are key to our Health & Safety strategy. Through initiatives such as moving our excavator fleet to GPS machines, we can ensure that people are less and less exposed to risks and dangers.
With People, Plant, Interface being our mantra we are looking at technologies such as 'proximity sensors' for site personnel and are also looking at introducing a bespoke phone app for all staff to have access to the correct information and instructions they need to do their jobs.
Systems and certification
We have a formal Health & Safety Management System accredited to OHSAS 18001. We have also been accredited within the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) as well as being members of Safety Management Advisory Services Ltd (SMAS) SSIP.
In 2018, our Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) was 0.175 reportable accidents per 100,000 employee hours worked. The previous years AFR was 0.376. Our aim for 2019 is to achieve an AFR of 0 once again.
