QA Weld Tech is Celebrating 1000 Days Incident Free

Back in April, we reported that we celebrated two years without a Lost Time Accident (LTA) and we are delighted to update that due to our ongoing commitment to safety, we are now approaching 1000 days incident free having spotted and removed over 650 hazards.

Our primary focus at QA Weld Tech is looking after our employees through engagement and regular safety meetings. By issuing individuals with a Hazard Spotting and Near Miss Reporting booklet, as well as encouraging all team members to report any cases of near misses and uncontrolled hazards to their line manager, it has been proven that we can prevent potential incidents from occurring and more serious accidents from happening.

We take pride in that we have such a close, dedicated workforce that have adapted to our ‘no blame’ culture and are able to open up in addressing issues that may be of concern as this helps towards us creating a safer environment for all.

To celebrate the success of 1000 days LTA free, every employee was presented with two new polo shirts as a reminder to not lose focus on safety goals as we aim to be at the forefront of good health and safety practice in our industry, setting the standards for others to follow.


Start Safe, Keep Safe at QAWT

Safety is our most important KPI, and as a matter of course is discussed at the start of every day. Engagement with all of our employees is fundamental to ensure that safety standards are adhered to at all times to maintain a safe working environment for everyone at QA Weld Tech.

An integral part of preventing accidents is our Hazard Spotting and Near Miss Reporting process, which has contributed to achieving three years without a RIDDOR and keeps us on target to achieve two years since a lost time accident on the 7/5/17.

This process empowers all employees at QA Weld Tech to stop a job at any point if they feel it is unsafe, and progress to either fix or remove the hazard immediately, or indeed escalate the issue to their line manager if necessary when further help is required.

With both ISO 14001 and 18001 accreditations combined with over 500 hazards prevented in the last two years, we continuously demonstrate our ability to engage with our staff, as well as implement ongoing improvements to ensure our facilities are the safest they can possibly be for all workers.
