In mid-2016 Laing O’Rourke launched its Next Gear SMS website, making its Safety Management System (SMS) publically available for the first time. In doing so, the SMS was available to all Laing O’Rourke employees and its supply chain, delivery partners, clients and other interested parties.
Next week we will launch our Mental Health and Wellbeing Campaign – the Five Ways to Wellbeing. A campaign that will raise awareness and promote the positive ways in which people can support their own mental health.
As part of a redesign of its Next Gear website that houses the Safety Management System (SMS), Laing O’Rourke has integrated its Environmental Management System (EMS) and SMS to provide easy access for all of its stakeholders.
The campaign focuses on improving the level of engagement with our supply chain partners and coincides with National Safe Work Month. It is centred on our supply chain partners and is the direct result of solutions put forward by our Pit Crews.
The FSR+ Campaign set clear expectations around how we manage high consequence risk across our workplaces. The Fatal and Severe Risk (FSR) programme is the cornerstone of our risk management and a key tactic of Next Gear.
Gearing up for Safety supports Next Gear Principle 3 – Safety is an ethical responsibility and not a bureaucratic activity – and enabled safer, smarter more efficient ways of working.
