    ‘Speak up about safety’ new workers urged

    By Jonathan Brown on January 27, 2016

    ‘Speak up about safety’ new workers urged

    Rookie workers are being urged to speak out if they feel unsafe in their jobs.

    The call comes from the British Safety Council (BSC) in the wake of research that shows a new employee is as likely to have an accident at work during their first six months in a job as they are in the rest of their working life.

    New campaign launched

    The Speak Up, Stay Safe campaign aims to raise awareness among young people of the risks posed in the workplace.

    A video launched as part of the campaign features 7 apprentices at Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. They explain the importance of workplace health and safety and urge others to speak out if they ever feel unsafe at work.

    ‘Campaign will give young workers confidence’

    Matthew Holder, campaigns manager at the BSC, says the video highlights the importance of health and safety to all young workers and illustrates the world of work from the apprentices’ perspective.

    It is hoped, he adds, that their efforts will give other young workers the confidence to raise concerns if they don’t feel safe.

    Aston Martin’s health and safety manager, Andrew Butler, says from day one the firm’s apprentices are taught that a good health and safety culture makes sound business sense.

    That, he adds, has resulted in a more engaged attitude among workers when it comes to health and safety issues.
