The reaction follows a report which states that the energy sector is set to benefit from a new project focusing on health and safety. A spokesperson from Park City provides a statement.
The second phase of a project aimed at improving health and safety standards for the energy sector has been launched. The project, titled ‘Powering Improvement’, has been created to promote continuous improvement in the management of health and safety risks within the electricity industry.
The main focus is on managing priority risks and working with electricity at height. The first stage of the project, which ran from 2010 to 2013, was viewed as a big success. It looked at the roles of leadership, how to improve competence and generate worker involvement in the health and safety industry.
The energy sector has an impressive record when it comes to health and safety. Only 42 people required medical treatment in the industry during 2013, which was down from 57 in 2010. “The UK’s energy industry has an enviable health and safety record but across the sector we are determined the second phase of Powering Improvement will see standards rise and injuries fall,” claimed Energy UK chief executive, Lawrence Slade. “By concentrating on joining up the energy industry and furthering partnerships, we can achieve what Powering Improvement sets out to do.”
Park City, a leading provider of health and safety services to business, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “The energy sector has an enviable record when it comes to health and safety, and initiatives like this are helping to keep people safe and secure in the workplace.
“More industries could benefit from projects like this, and creating awareness for health and safety is imperative if we want to cut down the number of accidents suffered at work. All businesses need to stay compliant with health and safety legislation, for the good of staff, to maintain levels of attendance and productivity and for anyone else who visits the workplace including customers, suppliers and contractors.”
