Ringway Jacobs donates £1 to charity for every ‘near miss’, safety/environmental concern or safety suggestion that is reported by its employees. This helps us to create a culture that seeks to identify and control hazards, thereby reducing risks and the potential for harm.
During 2016, our employees reported 4254 ‘near misses’, safety/environmental concern and safety suggestion meaning that we have donated £4254 to charity. The money has been divided between our five contracts according to how many ‘near misses’, safety/environmental concern or safety suggestion each contract submitted during 2016.
The contracts have donated this money to the charity of their choice:
Central Bedfordshire Highways
MIND - £189
Cheshire East Highways
CTC Cycling Trust – Congleton branch - £1242
Essex Air Ambulance - £1388
Macmillan (split between Enfield and Haringey branches) - £568
Transport for Buckinghamshire
PACE - £867
After being presented with the cheque from Transport for Buckinghamshire, Leah Lewis, Community Fundraiser at the PACE Centre said, “Attached is a photo of the children with the wonderful cheque you presented to us earlier in the week and we wanted to let you know that the children gave a massive clap to Transport for Buckinghamshire. You are all doing an amazing job, and the communication about PACE is clearly working, thank you so much. You guys really are awesome.”
