VolkerRail's Safety Day
RVT was delighted to attend VolkerRail's Step Up for Safety Day – an initiative where the entire workforce put down tools to raise awareness of the innovative health and safety products, methods and solutions available to ensure a safer working environment for all.
It was an extremely well-attended event by many of VolkerRail's workforce, including the SHEQ and management team. The day itself was engaging, interactive and informative – a superb combination to ensure the key message sticks. By physically assembling and using each piece of equipment, VolkerRail workers could see first-hand their effectiveness and ease of use.
Whilst we mentioned the many hazards our full product range helps combat, for the rail industry we purposely concentrated on noise and dust control. Our solutions to these site risks include the Soundex Curtains, Quilts, Quick Erect Enclosure, Micro Barrier, Pyla-Wrap and the Hydramist for effective dust suppression.
"An enjoyable interactive day which provided an excellent opportunity to gain insightful feedback from all who tested the equipment. We also learnt more about the challenges rail workers regularly face, which we feed back to our development team to help ensure our product range is extensive and effective. We felt it a privilege to be invited to attend." – Vern Harrington, Northern Sales Representative
