This is where we share resources and information about health, safety and wellbeing to support our workers and suppliers to ensure that everyone gets home safe and well. See 'Home Safe and Well - Our approach to heath, safety and wellbeing'.

We need your input too and want you to share your experiences with us, providing examples of best practice and lessons learned. This information will help us to create a bank of knowledge and experience that can be shared across our supplier community to improve health safety and wellbeing for all.

Our corporate Home Safe and Well aim is:

Is your nomination about a product, equipment or a new way of working? Is it something that has never been seen before? Maybe it’s a new way of applying an existing method or product? How is it innovative?

Raising the bar

Does your solution apply to one of the Raising the Bar categories?

What you did

Was your approach structured? Who was involved in identifying your solution? What did you actually do to deliver the Health, Safety and Wellbeing benefits?


What is the extent of Health, Safety and Wellbeing benefits? Are there other benefits such as CO2 emissions, sustainability, time saved?


Can this solution be applied on other projects? How easy is it for others to implement?
