Safety

Always front of mind, safety is our way of life. Our goal is for zero injuries and we continue to evolve and develop our safety programmes to achieve this across the Group. We also recognise that work, health and wellbeing are closely linked, and we collaborate with our employees to create safe, supportive work environments and promote the broader benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Our goal is for zero injuries and we continue to evolve and develop our safety programmes to achieve this across the Group. We also recognise that work, health and wellbeing are closely linked, and we collaborate with our employees to create safe, supportive work environments and promote the broader benefits of a healthy lifestyle. 

After seeing improved safety performance over a number of years, our rate of progress against targets slowed, so this year we introduced our new Be Safe programme to build on our strong safety foundations and reinvigorate our safety performance. Be Safe takes us to the next level of performance by transforming our safety culture, using the principles of behavioural science to help us achieve three key objectives: 

  • Continued progress on our way to zero harm 
  • Making safety a personal core value through behavioural change 
  • Improving business performance through better safety performance

Be Safe is a major programme, and we are investing the necessary time, resource and effort into its success. We held events in the UK and North America for leaders to hear about the Be Safe programme and how with pace, energy and leadership we will deliver this transformation throughout the organisation. Priority actions have been identified and excellent progress has been made. Our bespoke behavioural training package for managers and supervisors is already complete in First Student and Greyhound, and First Bus and First Transit will be completed during 2016.
