FULTON HOGAN HIWAYS REVAMPS SAFETY CONTROLS
Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) has introduced a new Risk Control Plan (RCP) to replace the old Hazard ID checklist.
FHH Safety, Quality, Training and Environmental Manager, John Tinsley, said that FHH is following the path of the parent company Fulton Hogan Limited. “The new document replaces the old Hazard ID checklists and sets out the way we identify and control the risks associated with our routine activities,” he said.
All FHH managers, supervisors and foremen were trained on how to fill out the new Risk Control Plan and were given practical examples of risk assessment and identification of controls.
“The new RCP is a much simpler and more flexible tool that can be used across the business.
It deliberately focuses our attention on the significant risks that could really hurt people,” Mr Tinsley said.
A total of 111 FHH staff and 55 subcontractors have undergone the training and the crews have started using the new RCP.
The document is important as it records both the daily prestart and site risk assessment.
Both FHH crew and subcontractors who work under Fulton Hogan Hiways are required to fill in the RCP.
