A MAINTENANCE firm has completed the first of its 10 contracted years with Gosport Borough Council with no accidents.

Kier, which carries out repairs and maintenance services for the council’s tenants, has a long-standing focus on health and safety for its employees.

The news of the first accident-free year comes as part of the company’s ongoing zero Accident Incident Rate initiative, designed to send every worker home safely at the end of each working day.

Strategies have been introduced at the firm to reduce incidents, decrease costs, and make the overall working environment safer.

Rob Leitch, Kier’s regional managing director, said: ‘It is imperative for a company of our size to have strong health and safety practices in place, especially with the building repair and maintenance work we carry out.’
