Having a consistent and positive approach to changing the culture of how staff engage with health, safety and wellbeing initiatives, alongside its commitment to the use of digital services within traffic management, has contributed towards Chevron Group reaching seven million working hours without a RIDDOR.
The milestone, which was reached earlier this month, has followed the roll-out of a number of projects and initiatives across the group, including a focus on mental health and wellbeing campaigns that are more effective at engaging with the workforce.
The company’s Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIF) is also current at 0.0, highlighting once again how much Chevron is committed to creating a safe workplace for its staff.
Chevron uses a range of digital solutions aimed at significantly improving the safety of road workers and road users.
Some of the recent campaigns that have helped the Chevron Group achieve its success include the #letstalkb*ll*cks initiative.
Launched in 2019, the campaign was set up to deal with the important subject of health and wellbeing in a light-hearted way to try and have a better impact on a male-dominated workforce.
In a short space of time, the campaign was a success with more staff visiting their GP after recognising symptoms highlighted in the campaign. Overall, the campaign contributed towards fewer accidents, staff taking less time off work and an overall happier and healthier team who work to the â€˜treating health like safetyâ€™ philosophy.
In addition to maintaining its Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) of 0.0, we have also seen a 30% reduction in non-reportable accidents and a 150% increase in the reporting of H&S observations.
Tim Cockayne, Chevron Group CEO, said: “Reaching 7 million hours without a RIDDOR is a very proud moment for everyone at Chevron. This has been achieved by having a consistent and positive approach to changing the culture of how our staff engage with health, safety and wellbeing initiatives. Alongside our commitment to work zone safety and the use and development of digital services within traffic management, this provides a positive platform for further development across the road, rail, utility and event sectors.”
