Say Hello, Wave Goodbye Plant Safety Awareness Training
Douglas OHI recently trialled Say Hello, Wave Goodbye Plant Safety Awareness Training courses on projects based in Sohar and Fahud. The sessions, which take around 1 hour each to deliver, are aimed at raising hazard awareness amongst those who work in close proximity to operated plant. The course which is practical and hands on, is further supported by posters advocating a 3-step method when approaching moving plant, pocket size cards in both English and Hindi as well as information on specific items of plant found on projects.
Peter Baker, Corporate HSSE Manager for Douglas OHI said “When asked most people know that falls from height are the most common cause of fatality in the construction arena, many however forget the danger posed at ground level by moving plant and transport. My previous experience as a Plant Operator taught me well that this is a much-underestimated hazard. Our bespoke training course, Say Hello, Wave Good Goodbye Plant Safety Awareness Training, delivers a simple message that`s practical and hands on, and with the supporting material this training should stick it needs to. Douglas OHI can deliver this training quickly and efficiently and I would be happy to discuss providing this with any interested employers who share my worries about the issue and our passion for making sites safer”.
