A GL-wide stand-down was held on 24th March 2017, with all operational sites closed for the day to enable around 300 people to attend the Health & Safety Workshop at the Normandy Hotel.
GL was privileged to have Michael Martin, Project Director on the Queensferry Crossing, to start the day with a Keynote Address when in addition to giving an update from ‘The Bridge’, he also gave a very personal accounts of his Health & Safety experiences throughout his career together with the challenges to be met in the current day.
With a production specifically tailored to GL’s operations, Sue Briggs and her AKT Productions team also delivered a thought-provoking and powerful message with their theatre-based approach to learning.
The day was interspersed with various group-based, themed discussion & feedback sessions, and the logistical organisational challenges and the efforts of all to attend were rewarded with extensive constructive feedback which will help inform further Health & Safety developments and initiatives across the Company’s operations.
