“We engaged Outsource Safety to review our Internal Transport activity which included both Forklift Truck and Electric Towing Vehicle operations. Following two days of in-depth analysis of the activity, they provided a detailed report with photographic evidence of all areas with the ‘potential for improvement’ in terms of providing a safer workplace for our customer, employees and visitors.
I have no hesitation in recommending Outsource Safety for both your training and consultancy needs”.
Kuehne + Nagel were a relatively new entrant into the aerospace market and had been engaged to provide on-site manufacturing supply processes for Airbus UK. In the course of their work, some issues had been raised and so it was decided a thorough investigation of what might have led to these near misses was warranted.
The clients internal safety teams were happy to engage an outside workplace transport safety specialist (ourselves) as the contract and environment was new and the issues being handled held some sensitivity. We visited the site over two days and completed a detailed report and offered guidance on root causes and what should be considered to reduce and manage risk, we also gave more general safety advice based on our observations at the site.
The site itself contained many very high-value items as wings and other components for Airbus were in manufacture so losses could represent significant sums.
