Health, Safety and Wellbeing in Concrete Repair

The health, safety and wellbeing of all those individuals that are connected to our concrete repair work are, without doubt, the central consideration made in everything that we do here at Churchill Concrete Technology.

Concrete Repair work is arduous, heavy work and operatives work long hours in all weather conditions often travelling many miles from their home. We ensure this is taken into account and that good mental health practise remains equally as important as having excellent physical health and safety practices.

World Mental Health Day

Like many organisations throughout the country, Churchill Concrete Technology will be recognising World Mental Health Day on October 10th, 2020. The global COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to practise and prioritise good mental health and wellbeing, and we strongly believe that these practices should be prevalent in the workplace. 

Experience has shown us that a safe working environment is a happy working environment and a happy working environment is recognised by all as one of the key factors in helping reduce mental health problems within a busy workforce.

Our standard practises

Notwithstanding our obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act the active promotion of good housekeeping is for all of us at Churchill Concrete Technology an ongoing process and is not seen as a one-time practice.

Our highly skilled and motivated workforce is keen to play a key role in promoting good housekeeping around their own workspace. For us good housekeeping means the proper utilisation of good quality PPE, keeping the workplace safe and working surfaces free of clutter, spills, dust, debris and the like. Organizing tools and materials in an orderly manner, minimizing potential risks of fire hazards and having a thorough understanding of the works that are to be carried out.

By carrying out these small tasks it helps to reduce the potential for slips and trips and the occurrence of minor injuries, it also helps improve our productivity and generally contributes to increasing our workforce morale.
