We currently have 17 Regional WWT Groups operating across England, Scotland and Wales where members can support and advise each other as well as share information on good practice. The regional groups also stage a number of free health and safety events each year which are mainly focused on the needs of small and medium contractors.
The groups attract members from across the industry spectrum. Partners include representatives from major contractors, training organisations, suppliers, colleges, local government, trade associations and safety groups.
75% of all those injured or killed on building sites in the UK work for companies employing fewer than 15 people. WWT provides a means through which these small construction companies and the self employed can get free health and safety advice from those in the industry.
The majority of people who attend these events go away saying that they have learnt something new - information that may help protect them in future. With over 4000 people attending WWT events each year, this has to be good news!
By becoming a partner in your local group, you can pass on your knowledge of health and safety to those who may have had little or no formal health and safety training. We encourage students in the industry to attend by running events at colleges and by joining a local group you can also help influence the workforce of the future.
Organisations or individuals wishing to contribute to the Working Well Together initiative should get in touch with their local group. For information and assistance in setting up a group in your area/region, please contact us.
