AG Successfully Completes Annual Safety Reboot

In keeping with our steadfast dedication to workplace wellbeing, AG is pleased to announce the successful completion of our annual Safety Reboot, a pivotal component of our ongoing #GoHomeSafe campaign. This initiative was led internally by our supervisors across the organisation and served as a valuable opportunity to engage with our staff on ten vital health and safety topics.

The informative sessions, conducted throughout the month of January as part of AG’s Safety Reboot, served as a reflection of the company’s health and safety performance in 2023. The tailored content provided insights into areas where improvements could be made for the upcoming year whilst covering a wide range of health and safety aspects encompassing both physical and psychological wellbeing.

Session 8, in particular, underscored the theme of Wellbeing, shedding light on AG’s ongoing initiatives aimed at enhancing the emotional, physical, and mental health of our employees. This comprehensive review encompassed Activ8, our in-house health and well-being initiative designed to promote holistic health, MetLife, our employee assistance program that provides free counselling and financial advice, as well as Health Shield, our health cash plan.

Session 10 offered a refresher on AG’s Good Catch initiative, which encourages our staff to promptly report hazards through the company’s Engage app. This comprehensive overview included a reminder of the various categories under which potential problems may fall, along with a recap of the submission process. In 2023, AG implemented over 1500 improvements across the company’s sites as a direct result of this initiative.

HSEQ Manager Cathy Maguire stated,

“AG has a longstanding commitment to its people and to providing a safe and healthy working environment, which is central to the firm’s ‘better, faster, safer’ vision. The #safetyreboot initiative is just one aspect of AG’s ongoing emphasis on health and safety throughout the year. Our continuous #GoHomeSafe campaign focuses on preventing fatal accidents in the workplace and making safety a personal priority, ensuring that everyone at AG returns home safely to their loved ones every day.”
