Ringway East Midlands achieves LTIFR score of zero for five years

Ringway East Midlands is celebrating after it achieved a Lost Time Incident Frequency Rate (LTIFR) score of zero over a five-year period.

The five-year spell includes the period of mobilization of the Milton Keynes term maintenance contract where there included many TUPE staff, as well as new staff that learned Ringway processes and procedures.

 

It also includes the spell since Ringway Lighting and Jointing joined the Division as of 1st April, which also has a LTIFR rating of zero.

 

Ringway East Midlands is determined to maintain their outstanding LTIFR score by increasing the number of logged near misses and the team recently held a Near Miss Day across the division on 13th April, with another planned to take place on Friday 13th July.

 

The events follow feedback from the annual staff briefing in January which showed that teams continue to look out for each other and highlight near misses to ensure everyone can get home to their families at the end of each day.

 

John Upcott, Divisional Manager, said: “This is a great Health & Safety Executive (HSE) statistic and one that my staff and I are extremely proud of. However, we are under no illusion that we must continue to get better and further embed our values and culture into all our operatives, staff and supply chain.”

 

The Ringway East Midlands HSE Strategy was developed by the management team and shared with all staff at the Annual Briefing. The number of ‘five minutes on safety’ undertaken on sites prior to works taking place so far during 2018 is slightly fewer than 900, with an average of 60 per week, which demonstrates the commitment to health and safety by operational teams who have increased the number of five minutes on safety undertaken against the target set.

 

Contract Managers have also been set a commitment to carry out one safety tour per month, with a new safety tour card which has been introduced with a check list of things to look for.
