Following the first phase of Freedom’s Behavioural Change Programme, TLC, which launched in August 2017, the business recently held its first Frontline Safety Coaching session to 30 employees who volunteered to train as a Frontline Safety Coaches. The session provided them with an understanding of safety performance coaching tools and how they can apply them to individuals in the workplace to improve their safety performance.
Head of SHEQ for Services, Simon Allen, said: “Collectively as a team Freedom has achieved significant results over the last two years in respect to work place safety. Currently our lost time and reportable injury rate is zero, which is both industry leading and the best achieved in Freedom’s history.
“Our Behavioural Change Programme has significantly contributed to our zero-harm achievement and our Frontline Safety Coaching has been designed to focus on the sustainability of our programme in the workplace as the work that carries the highest safety risk is on the frontline.”
“Our Frontline Safety Coaches will continue to carry out their daily work duties but in addition be a positive peer influence on colleagues when the supervisor or manager is not present and challenge unsafe behaviours of others as well as praise safe practice.”
