Health & Safety Charter
All members of British Precast are committed to reducing harm and have signed the Health & Safety Charter. British Precast collects quarterly incident statistics from all members which have demonstrated a reduction in incidents and also helps to shape our strategy for aspects which need to be addressed. British Precast members have reached a 75% reduction in lost time incidents over the last 15 years. We are aiming to reach a new target of Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate of 4.0 by 2018. Root cause analysis helps members to identify and take actions at factory level.
