Staff at Waterloo Air Products recently took part in an Injury Free Environment (IFE) training initiative delivered by Skanska UK.

Waterloo is encouraging its employees to adopt a culture of actively promoting a safer work place. Managing director Ron Edmondson said: “People should feel safe and secure at their place of work. We welcome Skanska’s approach. Any steps Waterloo can take to encourage employees to adopt standards that deliver a safer environment benefits everyone.”

Skanska actively encourages its subcontractors and business partners to participate in promoting safer environments, as their collaboration is essential in the prevention of injuries. The company initially implemented behavioural policies as part of its own injury free strategy.

IFE is a culture adopted by increasing numbers of businesses, where everyone in the company is empowered to take responsibility to be personally involved in the prevention of harm to themselves and their colleagues. By inviting subcontractors and business partners to take part, the industry is proactively embracing safer working practices and setting new standards.

Waterloo’s business development manager Rachel Roots said: “We work closely with Skanska UK on many projects, we’re delighted to support the company and that so many of our staff were able to take part.”

Ms Roots was one of the proud recipients of the Injury Free Environment orientation certificate presented by Skanska UK.
