Taking Health & Safety on the Road

Health & Safety Director Andy Bryce & Health & Safety Manager Mike Browne, both of Hawkins’ Bristol Office, recently gave an internal training course, not only to educate new starters in the company, but also to keep everyone at Hawkins up to date on current best practices. Colleagues from Leeds, Reigate, London, and Cambridge were in attendance and took part in several lectures and demonstrations as part of a travelling 'Health & Safety Roadshow'.

As Hawkins won a Gold Award for Health & Safety Performance in 2018 from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), all of our investigators are dedicated to making sure that we are just as thorough in our risk assessments and safety measures in 2019. Being on site after a loss has occurred can present numerous challenges for a forensic engineer. Dangerous situations and hazardous materials on site are always identified and mitigated by use of a dynamic risk assessment process. Our investigators not only come into contact with biological hazards, machinery, and unstable structures, but also often have to prepare for more specific risk factors.

Andy Bryce gave the investigators a detailed process for what to do when the scene of a loss may present an asbestos risk, and Dr Nick Carey instructed the group on how to carry out an investigation safely on a site that may have hidden electrical risks.
