A couple of weeks ago the AW Safety team visited the Dukeries Academy 6th Form students before they headed out into their various Work Experience placements.
As a company they wanted to share some of the wealth of their knowledge with the students about company workplace safety and to use some common-sense judgements whilst off the school campus in the world of work. With some of the students already employed in weekend jobs it was interesting to see who did and didn’t receive inductions and H&S talks prior to starting work.
They encouraged the students to stay Safe by adopting our “4 Golden Rules of Safety” which are :

  • * Be fit for Work with no health issues – mind and body
  • * Receive a briefing before starting work – understand the task/risks/rules
  • * Report all unsafe conditions – to take care of yourself and others
  • * Stop all activity if the workplace changes and becomes unsafe

AW Safety currently offer work-placement awareness combined risk assessment courses for staff and companies who plan to involve young people in their workplace operations and have not updated their own risk assessments or made any special provisions.
