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.
