World Day for Safety and Health at Work will be marked on Sunday 28 April. Recently appointed Group HSE Director at EnerMech, Emmanuelle Marshall, talks about how the safe working practices which protect us and colleagues from harm need to be front of mind every single working day.
“World Safety Day impacts all EnerMech staff, wherever in the world they happen to be working, but it is worth reminding ourselves that health and safety is not just for one day.
“HSE has been at the forefront of all of EnerMech’s operations since we were established in 2008, and as we continue to grow and expand, HSE continues to be a critical part of our journey and one on which we must be constantly improving.
“In the next five years EnerMech will undergo a major transformation and HSE will play a critical role in successfully implementing the changes which are required to take our business through the next phase of development. Our leadership on all matters health and safety related is recognised by our customers and our industry peers, but on World Safety Day it is worth taking stock and acknowledging that we can always do better and that we are obliged to constantly improve on existing HSE standards.
“One of my objectives in my role as HSE Director will be to leverage innovative approaches, using connected worker technology and mobile apps for example, to enhance the contribution my department makes to delivering business value across the group. We are already looking at new ways of transforming the HSE function so that it become less of a reporting function and more of a support function across our various business streams and this will be an ongoing process.
“The HSE vision of EnerMech is to not only protect the health and safety of our employees but to also protect the communities and the environment in which we work. We can all contribute to that vision on World Day for Safety and Health at Work by reflecting on our daily contribution and how we as individuals can ensure that EnerMech is one of the safest places in the world in which to work.”
