To mark World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2021, we spoke with our QHSE Director James Cassin about the importance of offering a safe place to work.
“At EnerMech, we believe that the health and safety of our people, customers and the planet is paramount. Operating a safe and socially responsible business that drives innovation, enhances wellbeing and contributes positively to the environments in which we operate in is non-negotiable. This sustainable approach underpins and supports all core operations. But we can’t do it alone.
On the 28th of April every year, we celebrate the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. This is the one day globally when every individual, company and union can remember those who have been lost or suffered an injury because of a workplace incident and importantly, raise awareness to prevent future incidents.
Unfortunately, during my career and prior to EnerMech, I have witnessed first-hand the devastating results of incidents and it’s something which still affects me today. It is incumbent on every single one of us, to work together to ensure we do not let that one lapse result in an injury, or worse, a fatality.
We also understand that mental health is just as important as physical health. This is why we encourage everyone to provide a listening ear for our friends and colleagues and to ask if they are okay? The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on mental wellness, so through the support from our employee assistance programme and charity partnerships, we are there to support our workforce if needed.
I’m proud to be part of a business that delivers high quality operations which make a difference to the world, so let’s keep making the difference safely.”
