Since 2008 when the Near Miss Hazard Alert (NMHA) scheme began at Stanton Bonna the reduction in accidents and incidents has been phenomenal – they have reduced by over 90%!!
The NMHA initiative engages the whole workforce. It encourages the 162 employees to complete a NMHA card to inform the Health & Safety Department of a potential near miss or hazard. Examples include unsafe equipment, regular spills and unsafe practices – appropriate actions or new procedures can then be put in place.
Stanton Bonna donates £1 to a designated charity for each card submitted. This year the Health & Safety Committee, which includes management and staff representatives, selected the Nottingham Hospitals Charity in support of Neonatal Units.
Colin Richardson kindly rounded up the donations to £500 for this worthy cause.
