Ainscough builds upon safety culture

In 2018, Ainscough Group launched an employee engagement application designed to improve communications between its workforce and build upon the company’s safety culture.

The My Ainscough application allows team members to communicate ‘near miss reporting’ in real time.

Dave Berry, group quality, health, safety, and environment (QHSE) manager, explained: “Using the application, we are, for the first time, able to send out safety alerts to targeted groups in real time. This might include information relating to a specific incident, a new piece of safety policy or lessons learned from our own teams.

“We have a 360-degree view of safety and the application enables us to get important information out to relevant parties very quickly,” he added.

The Ainscough Group is made up of four specialist divisions: Ainscough Crane Hire, Ainscough Heavy Cranes Division, James Jack Lifting Services and Ainscough Wind Energy Services.
