Stop. make a Change Targets Top Risks in 2019
For 2019, Stop. Make a Change is aligning itself with the Infrastructure Client Group’s Top Risks Project.
Aimed at addressing seven of the biggest health, safety and well being risks in the sector, the Top Risks projects will seek ways to tackle risks associated with people and mobile plant; mental health; striking buried services; lifting operations; heavy goods vehicle operations; hand-arm vibration related disease and public safety.
Since it’s successful launch in 2017, Stop. Make a Change – which is co-coordinated by CECA National Chief Executive, Alasdair Reisner, has grown with around 100,000 workers for 100 different employers taking part in the initiative last year.
Stop. Make a Change enables sites, offices and production facilities to stop work for focused discussions The initiative saw sites, offices and production facilities stop work for focused discussions on health, safety and wellbeing. Customers, contractors and suppliers are encouraged to make specific commitments to drive improved performance in these priority areas and share best practice.
Following feedback from these companies, CECA has expanded Stop. Make a Change in 2018 to cover the whole construction sector rather than solely infrastructure. This is intended to increase the impact and share the best practice that has been developed more widely.
In 2019 Stop. Make a Change is taking place from 9 to 13 September.
