Transforming Health and Safety Culture
Implementing the Network Rail and Thameslink Programme vision and objective of everyone home safe, every day required a cultural transformation across the Programme and its suppliers.
The objective of this cultural improvement was that everyone working with Thameslink Programme would be responsible for their own and each other’s safety.
This would, in turn, eliminate injuries and become a cultural value for Network Rail and its suppliers. At the outset, the prevalent culture towards safety was benchmarked, and an action plan then set in place to eliminate injuries through a systematic approach to cultural improvement.
In this interview, Mark Lincoln, Principle Programme Engineer discusses the setting up of the processes and procedures behind the construction of London Bridge station.
