KWS Alpha hit a 4 year safety record
In 2013 KWS Alpha was proud to achieve another outstanding milestone on its exemplary safety record by reaching 4 years without a RIDDOR or lost time accident.
The KWS Alpha team celebrated this achievement at a recent team building event to mark the rollout of the 2013/14 Business Plan.
KWS Alpha supplies half of Northern Ireland's drinking water by operating and maintaining 4 water treatment works, a pumping station and several kilometres of main in Northern Ireland, in a Public Private Partnership with Northern Ireland Water.
Since service commencement of our facilities, KWS Alpha has ensured adherence to the 5 points of PPE - hard hats, gloves, eye protection, safety shoes and hi visability jackets - making a conscious effort to ensure contractors on our sites do the same. We have been supported by many colleagues specialising in Quality, Environment, Safety and Health across the Kelda Group; who have assisted performing regular audits and maintaining best practise.
Ensuring a strong culture of hazard reporting and ownership of resultant actions has led to mitigation of risks and continuous awareness of safety throughout the business, which we hope will ensure that we continue to maintain our safety record long into the future.
