WISBECH-based construction business Kier Eastern is encouraging all its site workers to help raise health and safety standards. As part of a Don't Walk By initiative throughout the Kier Group, workers are encouraged to report near-misses and help eliminate potential hazards.
In all, 20 sites across the region have participated in the scheme, triggering charity pledges by Kier Eastern amounting to £2,550 for St John Ambulance, which provides first-aid training for Kier Eastern staff.
All three of Kier Eastern's offices, at Norwich, Wisbech and Witham, have taken part.
Making a presentation to St John Ambulance area commissioner Jo Bunn at Kier Eastern's offices in South Brink, Wisbech, director Paul Greenly said: "A strong health and safety culture underpins all of our operations, helping to safeguard the wellbeing of everyone on site."
