Workplace safety is of paramount importance and with the rise in work-related fatalities in Great Britain, it has become crucial to adopt innovative safety measures. In 2022/23, 135 workers lost their lives in accidents, marking an increase of 12 fatalities from the previous year.
During Safety Week, Colas Rail UK organised multiple exclusion zone training sessions to ensure that teams were well-informed and prepared. These sessions were conducted in collaboration with trusted on-track plant suppliers, including Quattro, Green Power and Colmar. These sessions provided valuable insights into the risks and challenges faced by their operators on busy sites.
