KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE
Is our most serious commitment. At Higgins our safety success is achieved through the integrity of our company safety systems and the strength of our safety culture.
When people join Higgins or partner with our business, we train to ensure all staff attain the high standards we set and understand our uncompromising approach to safety.
A. Strong safety culture
Higgins safety culture is underpinned by the Higgins core values. Two of these core values are ‘Act with Care’ and ‘Work as a Team’.
Individuals are encouraged and supported to take personal responsibility for their own safety and that of their team. Individuals are supported by staff appointed Safety Champions.
If work is unsafe, our people are supported to stop work and fix it or report it.
Monthly team training meetings and daily ‘Toolbox’ meetings reinforce our company wide commitment to employee safety participation in line with Our Safety Policy
Higgins ‘PeopleSafe’ online database assists staff to proactively report improvements, events, hazards and near misses. This system can be accessed remotely.
