HIGHWAYS contractor Amey held a series of workshops designed to boost the capabilities of other local groups.
Attended by people from a range of local businesses, the workshop focused on how to establish a culture of health and safety within an organisation.
David Ogden, account director for Amey in Hampshire, said: ‘We work closely with our local supply chain to deliver services across the county.
‘By sharing our collective wealth of expertise and best practice, we can continually develop local practices to further improve our service delivery across the county.
‘The Supplier Academy series has been extremely popular with local businesses, who have responded positively to the sessions held so far. Running events such as these is part of Amey’s commitment to invest in local communities and the businesses it works with.’
As part of the event, businesses signed up to the Amey health and safety initiative ‘Let’s make it happen together’.
Clare Branch, health and safety manager at Community Clean who attended the academy for the first time, said: ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting. It’s great to hear other companies’ ideas and troubles in delivering a health and safety culture.’
Amey works with local businesses to deliver highways services for Hampshire County Council.
