Amey's security and risk prevention campaign Target Zero
has received a prize

Worplace security objective: Target Zero
As part of Amey's commitement to security in the workplace, the filial of Ferrovial Services has carried out the healthy and safety campaign Target Zero
, which involved various communication initiatives including the audiovisual report Please Wake Up.
This video aims to help employees to understand the emotional impact
of an accident within the workplace.
At the same time, Amey continues to run new training courses
to raise awareness about the need for all employees to work together to create a safe environment. The campaign developed by the Department of Occupational Health and Safety and Internal Communication was launched in September 2014 and since that day, Target Zero
has featured in every briefing, conference, presentation and edition of HUB to communicate the message to all employees.
Gary Carvell, Group HSEQ Director, said:
“Our Target Zero campaign has been really impactful for us, 93% of our employees say that “Amey takes health and safety seriously” but the challenges we face every day mean that we have to be relentless in our pursuit of zero harm.”
Ian Deninson, Group HR and Communications Director, said:
“There is nothing more important than the safety of our employees at Amey and we are very proud of the impact Target Zero has had within our business. It has helped to raise awareness and encourages everyone to stop and think about the actions and behaviours which contribute to potentially unsafe acts or conditions and consider how these can be prevented.”
