Ardmac has successfully launched this year’s Christmas Safety First Focus Advent calendar. The run up to Christmas is traditionally a high risk time on construction sites as people wind down and their focus is on holidays and other things.
Industry statistics show that accidents are twice as likely to happen in the month of December than at any other time of the year.
For 2019, as part of our Safety First program , we are proud to launch our campaign themed ‘Safety Focus from now to Christmas’ . Using our celebrated Advent Calendar, we introduced daily themed tool box talks as part of the countdown to Christmas. Each day the safety focus differs in topic and ways of engaging from quizzes to video clips and opportunities for teams to get involved. The campaign also focuses on home safety topics as well as work related content. The campaign runs from the first of December right up until the teams wrap up for the festive break.
The innovative campaign has been recognised by industry peers and our Safety First program has been shortlisted across multiple industry awards for excellence in safety.
Our teams are committed to doing more to ensure that everyone goes home safely to their families, not just for Christmas but for every day and we are extremely proud of their commitment to safety first, always.
