RJ Power Rail as a specialist electrical contractor and a Principal Contractor of choice to Network Rail (NR) for the installation of electrification and power systems is always challenging its team to find ways of demonstrating excellence in its activities.
As previous winners of the prestigious Sword of Honour Award from the British Safety Council for ‘Excellence in Health and Safety Management’ NR are also keen to extend their own excellence throughout their supply chain.
RJ Power Rail has been looking at how they can maintain excellence throughout their organisation and as a result have been focusing upon improvements to their occupational health and safety management to help maintain the safety, health and welfare of its workers and supply chain partners. Making sure it complies with all legislation is of course crucial, however, RJ Power Rail want to make a difference in the lives of all their workers and ultimately the workers families.
To this end, RJ Power Rail has been developing a new and proactive system of occupational health surveillance and screening for its workers. In assessing the viability of RJ Power Rail’s initiative, the company has engaged Company Health Services and their specialist – Dr Granville Crane – to not only review our new system, but also attend our worksites, where we were able to show him the works we undertake and the situations and circumstances our workforce face on a daily basis.
We look forward to keeping you updated on the development and finalisation of our proposals over the coming weeks, as RJ Power Rail look to ensure that each person working for or with our organisation returns home safe and well every single day.
