Safety Milestone Totals Two Million

17 February 2011

The Costain Team working on the Dwr Cymru Welsh Water Framework is celebrating after exceeding four years without a RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations).  This remarkable milestone was reached on 31 January 2011 and has seen two million manhours worked without a RIDDOR over the four years.

John Madden, Framework Director said: "To reach the four year mark without a reportable accident is a wonderful achievement for the whole team.  Our impressive safety record highlights the continued commitment to health and safety by all Costain staff on the Framework and throughout our supply chain".

The team continues to promote safety awareness through numerous incentive schemes across its projects John goes on to say: “However, continual focus has to be applied in order to maintain this record and this year Costain Behavioural Safety (CBS) will be a primary initiative to aid the Framework’s drive for continual improvement”.

The Framework intends to appropriately mark this milestone with all the Costain Framework staff and supply chain who have contributed to this superb safety achievement.
