Workplace safety is a top priority for companies all around the world, and it's no different for ArcelorMittal Construction Solutions.


On May 3rd, 2023, the company celebrated its 17th annual Health and Safety Day, supported by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). This year's event was designed to ensure that all employees were engaged and focused on promoting safe working practices, as part of the company's Journey to Zero.

 

The Activities at this Year's Event


The event began with the ArcelorMittal Health and Safety Video 2023. After the video, the event started with an opening briefing from our CEO and Health & Safety Manager, followed by the activities.


The activities included practical, hands-on training sessions, such as first aid training, manual handling, and work equipment use presented by Armadillo Safety.


There were also presentations on health by local occupational health specialists, All Health Matters, lifting & slinging presented by Medway Slings, and presentations from in-house trainers on forklift truck awareness, hazard awareness, and incident reporting.


The event also featured mindfulness activities, presented by Happy Healthy Yoga, to help employees learn techniques to reduce stress and maintain their well-being while at work.


 

Teamwork Exercise


All employees were divided into eight groups, and each group visited nine different stands throughout the day. Group leaders were embedded into the groups, ensuring that timings were kept, groups stayed together, and everyone moved to the correct stall per the programme.


The stand presenters were responsible for setting up their stands and following the timings as per the programme. They captured the nominal role for each group session and ensured that staff completed a QR feedback form at the end of the last session, as per the stand pack.

The team comprised event managers, event assistants, and event operations coordinators, who delegated tasks to ensure that all nine stand plans were ready, groups were allocated, catering was taken care of, and feedback forms were created.
