We asked Mark Dougill, Director and Principle Consultant at Gryphon Management a few questions around Health & Safety:

  • What are your key tips for getting Health & Safety right? 

    I find getting some good communication in early on in the process. Understand who the key stakeholders are…..try and build a full understanding of all the different roles and responsibilities. Once this is achieved, we can then wrap a robust health and safety management solution around the project
  • What measures are in place at Gryphon Management for managing your Health & Safety? 

    We have our own Health and Safety system but we usually elect to appoint a partner (Safety Smart) to help us be leading edge in our overall services. We also find that having a partner in this area brings an independence to the process that is important when making decisions that have H&S implications 
  • Why is Health & Safety important to Gryphon Management?

    Health & Safety is at the heart of every successful business and this is especially true in the rail sector. It is vital to our reputation and the reputation / well-being of our clients that we deliver great service, great value and above all, a safe service

Occupational skin cancer is on the rise with two out of three workers unaware they are at risk of skin cancer resulting in many not applying adequate protection whilst working outdoors.

This is the Birmingham I actually live in. This is my real experience, shame a bunch of aggressive divisive idiots sullied it for a while, off they pop.

This is the reality of what women in public service regularly face and will remain to face in our future unless we confront abusive men who feel they have a right to intimidate women. Bless that these men think they could shout Jess down ⬇️
