Assisting Mansell with their SHE Site Inspections

Seaham Safety Services Ltd are proud to announce that we are currently assisting Mansell in the implementation of their SHE Site Inspections. We will be working on their behalf for 20 days starting on 24th March 2011 extending into April 2011.

We are particularly impressed with and are extremely delighted to be part of the Mansell Zero Harm Programme which was launched by their parent company Balfour Beatty. Please see below for further details of the programme.

Mansell 2


In refusing to accept that accidents are inevitable in construction, Mansell has embraced the Zero Harm programme launched by our parent company Balfour Beatty in 2008.

Our target is to achieve Zero Harm across the company by 2012 and that means:

  • Zero fatalities
  • Zero injuries to the public
  • Zero permanently disabling injuries
  • No long term harm to health
  • An Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) of less than 0.1 by end of 2012

Mansell’s approach is to embed the Zero Harm principle in all of our processes. The crucial work we have already started on behavioural change, involving not only Mansell employees but also our supply chain partners, will help us make the step-changes necessary to achieve these objectives.

Above all, we’ll be calling on everyone to “Make Safety Personal”.

We will be using a “Zero Harm Journey Plan” to focus our activities and drive improvements. Regular udates on our progress will be published.
