The THINK SAFETY campaign focus on reducing the number of injuries from “manual handling”, “slips and falls”, “pricks, cuts and abrasions”.
To support this, CMT I/S has initiated a series of new activities to target the injury frequency rate increased during 2015.
The target group is people working on the Cityringen work sites on all levels and the initiative includes a series of posters and instruction material. The campaign and concept have been approved by our client Metroselskabet and tested in our own OHS organisation and in focus groups.
During 2016, posters will decorate all work sites and the camp. The poster models are all workers from CMT I/S and our sub-contractors.
CMT believes that thinking before your work, taking care of yourself and staying fit are all key to a productive, healthy and safe working environment and the THINK SAFETY campaign portrays positive relations and good role models.
“It is important to realize that OHS performance has high priority with CMT.
It is also important to focus on the fact that OHS ( Occupational Health and Safety) does not fall under the only responsibility of the OHS Department, but it is the responsibility of every single individual occupied within the project. Sometimes within the context of raising attention to problems, and sometimes to be the person that actively implements the solution to the problem.
We will focus our attention to the problem at hand, and not waste our energy and efforts in pointing our finger to “who’s to blame”. This is an attitude that we will not accept.
To sum up, our OHS attitude could be expressed as “Think before you act”.
This is not contradictory to efficient production! Everybody must always ask themselves: “How can I do this more safe, more efficient and better”.
And sharing the information and knowledge gathered is essential.
The OHS committee carries a central responsibility in this task.
Finally we must accept, that as we do set a high ambition for our OHS, the risk of not achieving our ambitions, will be high as well.”
