Campaign of the Year
This category is designed to recognise campaigns that have led to significant
improvements in health, safety, fire safety and/or security to the benefit of people
Employee health and safety is a corporate responsibility,
particularly in hazardous working environments.
Understanding how to buy the right product to protect workers
can be complicated, and purchasers often rely on trusting
both suppliers' advice and recognised European processes.
But Arco was able to highlight these can't be relied on.
AstraZeneca Macclesfield implemented a strikingly visible
and creative branding campaign, which underpins a longterm
safety, health and environment (SHE) culture
programme, in which everyone takes personal responsibility.
This has resulted in a significant improvement in SHE
performance and engagement, and has been adopted
across many other AstraZeneca sites globally.
This campaign has helped improve awareness of this specialist
area of inspection among CAN personnel and those working
alongside them. A series of face-to-face training sessions,
teamed with a complete overhaul of working arrangements,
continues to prove beneficial in reducing occupational
exposures to radiation and improving safety for everyone.
Evac+Chair realised the nature of risk was changing but
many of those responsible were unaware. To substantiate
this, it hosted a round table and carried out a survey. It
quantified its findings and used various media to prompt
those responsible to review their policies and processes.
More buildings are better prepared as a result.
The company’s management conducted a programme of
audits linked to KPI activities. The supporting documentation
used is designed to promote direct engagement with
employees and contractors through open questions, identify
opportunities for improvement to existing procedures and
drive down behaviour-related safety incidents while
promoting a positive safety culture.
Research identifies that near-misses and unsafe behaviour
are the incidences in the workplace least likely to be reported.
The perception is if no one was hurt, it wasn't an accident.
However, near-misses and unsafe behaviour are lead
indicators of underlying issues, so reporting these incidents is
crucial to preventing more serious accidents. The ‘Big or
Small, Report them ALL’ campaign was designed to address
Total UK, in collaboration with Tarmac, Hoyer, Redolution and
Pinderfields Hospital, produced an industry-leading,
informative and hard-hitting training video. Focusing on the
fact that bitumen burns and the associated short and longterm
impacts on an individual's well-being, the video also
highlights the importance of PPE, product storage, transfer
and transportation. This provides a platform for the industry
to learn more about these key activities.
UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA)
The UK Asbestos Training Association is working in
partnership with Jobcentre Plus, part of the Department for
Work and Pensions, to raise awareness of asbestos and offer
free training to those actively seeking employment. The free
UKATA asbestos-awareness training is available nationwide,
across all regions and also via e-Learning.
UK Power Networks
As a visually stimulating and 'umbrella' safety campaign, 'Be
Bright, Stay Safe' is quickly setting the benchmark for other
organisations. With a clear brand identity and consistent
messaging, the campaign is at the heart of UK Power
Networks’ social role, and reinforces the company’s strategy
to be a respected corporate citizen.
This campaign was highly successful at embedding the
importance of all aspects of health and safety. By focusing on
high-risk areas and using accredited providers, it has seen
improved behaviours and a much more positive attitude
from retailers, which is contributing to making retail centres
