Health and Safety is the number one value at Crossrail. Crossrail have pursued a Target Zero strategy in which three principles are clear: everyone has the right to go home unharmed; all harm is preventable; we have to work together to achieve this. There are six pillars underpinning Target Zero, which structures a performance culture that balances leading and lagging indicators. The ‘Gateway’ programme has been developed in which our contactors can highlight their excellence above the norm and gain credit for this, which is developed into a systematic performance measure that lies at the heart of what we do. This is part of a core governance culture that drives down through the organisation, and enable a bottom up challenge that drives change. The talk will set out in detail how this all aligns to drive an ever improving H&S record, exceeding industry average and exceeding the Olympic Delivery Authority performance.
