Health and Safety
Where health and safety matters
RDM acknowledge that being proactive on health & safety is key in our industry. That’s why at RDM health & safety is treated more like a culture rather than a ‘tick box’ exercise.
At RDM we acknowledge the importance of safe working practices, to keep our staff, our customers and the public safe at all times, all of our employees undergo a rigorous annual health & safety training programme in accordance with their job role. Each employee takes part in up to 20 different courses covering all aspects of health & safety including emergency, first aid and fire safety. The courses are a mixture of classroom-based and interactive video courses which are designed to teach new skills and make each trainee aware of their environment and the hazards and risks that surround them. Our staff also undergo extensive training in how to conduct themselves in a safe manner when using equipment or working in potentially hazardous areas.
Each course is reviewed on an annual basis ensuring that our staff receive the correct and relevant information required. Feedback about each course is requested from our team leaders and senior engineers to help review the progress of the training. Most of the training given is provided with a booklet of information related to each course which is available to our staff via our website.
We have scheduled biannual health and safety meetings as well as other interim meetings where required, headed by our assigned competent person who updates all of our staff with the progression of health & safety matters and the updates on our policies or introduction of new policies.
