Supporting strategic business improvement within the galvanizing industry
We work in partnership with the Galvanizers Association, supporting their initiatives to reduce the level of accidents, incidents and near misses within the industry. Bringing Health & Safety, HR and insurance together to work as one, we have developed a new solution to address the current issues.
Review & Report
The provision of a simple and robust Health & Safety report individually tailored to each business, reinforced by relevant and workable HR and supported by an insurance programme that understands the nature of the risk, provides strategic business improvement.
The insurance programme will reflect the work the business is doing to change the past, and provide financial support through risk management bursaries that tie back to the needs of the individual businesses, providing the bespoke support you require.
The review we undertake with the business, which is free to all GA members, will cover:
- Health & Safety policies
- Employee consultation
- Systems & procedures
- PPE & Equipment checks
- Risk Assessments
- Fire assessments
- HR & Training
- Occupational Health Checks
The resulting Health & Safety Audit Report will highlight areas for strategy development, whether it’s manual handling, process problems or a requirement for more specific training on forklift truck driving or cranes and slinging issues. We will then interrogate the HR processes and devise an individual plan to resolve all the issues identified. We involve 4 key insurers to work with us and provide the bursary funding and ongoing support to implement the risk improvements identified.
We intend and accept that our work with Galvanisers is for the long term, and we are committed to support them. We work in partnership with the business to support the process and stay on top of the plan, reviewing and adjusting to deliver continuous business improvement.
Outcomes & Benefits
Each individual business will see a unique set of outcomes and benefits, dependent on the issues identified and resolved through their bespoke plan. However, general outcomes and benefits will be seen by all businesses who take this journey with us, such as:
Increased Productivity – There will be increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and fewer accidents, resulting in less time lost on investigations and shutdowns. Ultimately, there will be a competitive advantage gained through the implementation of the plan.
Cost savings – These will come from reduced insurance premiums, no additional excess payments, a reduction in legal and recruitment fees and reduced downtime.
Competitive Advantage – There will also be potential savings on services already purchased as we work to bring together the three core support services of insurance, HR and Training and Health & Safety.
