Culture Change Through Leadership – Shanks
More than 100 director safety leadership visits took place in the first year of the scheme and feedback from employees has been positive. The scheme isn’t the sole factor responsible for Shanks’ improved performance; however it is the flagship for an improved emphasis on safety across the group.
In the ten years prior to the introduction of the safety leadership scheme Shanks UK’s RIDDOR (>3 day) accident rate had reduced by 32%. Within the first year of the scheme this improved to a 42% reduction in accidents. This enhanced performance is a direct result of a shift in the company’s safety culture, driven by strong, visible leadership at the top of the organisation, coupled with an emphasis on employee engagement.
