H3. Health & Wellbeing Report
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 20 May, 2014
Please provide a link to the latest published information on the health and wellbeing of your employees.
As part of our commitment to continuously improve health, safety and wellbeing. Last year we worked vigorously to attain OSHAS 18001 accreditation, which accumulated in an external Lloyds audit. The feedback from the Lloyds assessors was incredibly complimentary regarding the quality and professionalism of all the Fabricom employees they encountered. We came through the process with only a small number of minor non-conformities raised by the assessors and were awarded the certificate in October 2013.
We operate in the engineering construction industry and the health safety and wellbeing of our employees is paramount to our business objectives. We apply the principle that all accidental injuries and work ill health is preventable by achieving high standards of health and safety consciousness, discipline and individual accountability throughout all levels of the organization. We commit that all new projects will consider health, safety and wellbeing issues surrounding accommodation and mess facilities upon the initial start-up of a new project.
All our staff has access to wellbeing initiatives, these are initially communicated via email, newsletters, poster campaigns, toolbox talks and through the employee communication group. Invitation to all wellbeing events and campaigns are open to all employees within operational constraints.
We have for the past 3 years run numerous wellbeing events and campaigns within our organisation and our commitment is to continue this for the foreseeable future. Our business is predominantly project based within the mechanical engineering construction industry and this lends to large fluctuations in staff dependent upon projects and work scope. This gives us the opportunity to run our wellbeing campaigns to new audiences, while continually assessing and improving delivery and content of our campaigns.
We produce an action plan annually setting out our intended commitments to our health and wellbeing strategy for the forthcoming 12 months and report on progress and strive for continual improvement.
