5% Reduction in accident rates for Briggs & Forrester Group

2017 was another positive year for the Briggs and Forrester Group’s health and safety record. Even with increases in project turnover, number of man hours worked and number of workers, the company has seen a year on year reduction in accidents and lost time injuries.

The Briggs & Forrester Group, and its workforce, completed in excess of 8 million man hours and achieved a 5% reduction in accidents across the group compared to 2016.

Two group companies, Briggs & Forrester Special Projects and Briggs & Forrester Living, achieved zero for RIDDOR reportable accidents again in 2017, making it their second consecutive year RIDDOR free.

Steve Watson, Group HSEQ Manager said “It is a testament to the commitment of all those who work for, and with Briggs & Forrester that we can show a year on year reduction in recorded accidents.

“Health and safety is paramount in everything that we do, and in 2017 we introduced the ‘OUR site, OUR safety, OUR lives’ initiative across our project sites. It is evident through these results that our staff are embracing our ethos, and aiming to make a positive difference.”
