On the 22nd of August we teamed up with Overbury to highlight the risks of WAH at the BBC Cardiff Project. After a significant accident occurred onsite to another contractor it was agreed that we need to highlight the dangers to all employees including Directors, Managers and site based engineers. We then suggested having Jason Anker come to site to share his story with us and to Overbury site management who agreed this would be a great idea.
There was a great turn out for the event for which feedback was positive and welcomed. We look forward to seeing Jason work some more with CMB on future projects.
David Williams who arranged the visit of Jason Anker said: “It was a brilliant event and an incredible story delivered by Jason which there is not 1 person in the room who I dare say could not relate too. It’s a very strong message to all of us as Directors, Managers and site engineers that we have to put our selves first, at all times during our working day. It’s a cliché and a term used widely in our industry that we have to make safety personal, we have to remember that its not just us who would suffer in the event of an accident what about your partners, children, mum and dad, work colleagues? If I have an accident how is it going to impact on their lives? I know which way I would rather work and that is safely and Jason has just reinforced by desire to help continue change in the culture on constructions sites and all those working for and with CMB engineering moving forward!”
