On Monday 30 January 2023, Forker Group held their first business wide Safety Stand Down Day at Villa Park. Presenting our key Safety and Wellbeing messages and sharing our key lessons through our Directors, Contracts Managers, and several guest speakers to 180 staff and supplier representatives was a big task in the planning. The positive engagement, open and honest feedback we have received throughout has been both uplifting and rewarding. Our own Mental Health and Wellbeing video shared some very sensitive and personal experiences that really has hit home the need for us all to talk. As a business we are merely on the journey to a positive safety culture, with Monday being a great day to stop and share our progress and focus on our next steps.
We would like to thank Flannery Plant Hire, Jason Anker MBE, Ally Parker and Himmat Rai for their engaging workshops and talks on the day.
We look forward to holding another safety event in the near future with Forkers Scotland Ltd.
