DEESIDE scaffolding firm NSG UK has achieved a safety goal of one million man hours with no lost time accidents.
The company employs 450 people at sites across the UK, providing scaffolding, painting and blasting, thermal insulation and a range of other industrial services.
Managing director Mike Carr attributes the safety milestone to the firm’s behavioural safety scheme, Watch What You’re Doing, which was created and implemented by shop floor staff.
He said: “Watch What You’re Doing started from the workers on the ground, as we wanted them to take responsibility for their colleagues’ and their own safety.”
To mark the achievement staff were given £5,000 to donate to a charity of their choice, with the Shrewsbury House Youth and Community Centre in Everton being picked as the recipient.
