In an article published in the latest issue of ARCA News, it shows how Land Securities Clive Johnson and ARCA are working together to promote ‘work at height awareness’ and ‘behavioural safety’.
On the 10th September 2014 ARCA were visited by Clive Johnson, Land Securities Group Head of Health & Safety. Clive was visiting ARCA’s Headquarters in Burton upon Trent to meet with the ARCA Training team to demonstrate the training presentations that Land securities are currently delivering with regards to Work at Height and Safety Behaviour.
In the morning Clive spent several hours delivering the ‘work at height’ presentation. Whilst all the ARCA trainers have already attended a PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association) Certificate of Competence, at user level for both Low Level and Tower categories, it was still extremely interesting to get a Clients perspective. Clive delivered a presentation which sets the standard that Land Securities demand from their own sub-contractors in relation to work at height.
Clive impressed upon the trainers the fact that falls from height remain the single biggest cause f fatalities on UK construction sites.
