Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Team
FDL have a dedicated Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Team to take care of the day-to-day needs of the business. Assisting our Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Team are our external safety and environmental consultants ‘Merebrook’, who carry out independent reviews on a weekly or fortnightly basis, dependent on the programme demands.
The Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Manager will visit the sites on a regular basis, discussing new legislation, campaigns, new policies, industry and in-house lessons learnt and the effects on the works with the site team. Company processes are also disseminated via alerts, bulletins, good practice, site memos and toolbox talks, so that the sites, supporting offices and yards are always in touch and up to date.
AIR = Accident Incidence Rate. This is the calculation used by HSE. This formula makes no allowances for variations in part-time employment or overtime. It is an annual calculation
AFR = Accident Frequency Rate. This is the calculation preferred by some parts of industry as it avoids distortions due to overtime etc. Can be calculated for any time period. (Sometimes calculated per 1,000,000 hours)
