Scotland - About Us

 

In Scotland, WWT operates as a sub-group of Site Safe Scotland.
 
Site Safe Scotland (SSS) was set up in the 1980s to achieve improved standards of health and safety within the Scottish construction industry. It has developed into a group that includes representatives from major and specialist contractors, small builders, professional bodies, trade associations, training organisations, construction clients, trade unions, Local Authorities and Health and Safety Executive inspectors (HSE).
 
Like WWT, Site Safe Scotland also aims to achieve a reduction in accidents and fewer cases of work related ill health through the sharing and dissemination of best practice and information between industry and HSE, as well as maintaining strong links between HSE and the participating representatives.
 
The group concentrates primarily on small and medium sized enterprises and has worked hard to ensure that companies and individuals are armed with the information they need to achieve safe and healthy working on construction sites.
 
The group has contributed to the planning and delivery of numerous Safety and Health Awareness Days (SHADs), across Scotland working with partners in local authorities, regional construction industry groups and training organisations.
 
These SHADs have been tailored to suit the needs of each area and this work is delivered through the Site Safe Scotland SHAD Working Group whose members give their time and expertise free of charge. Very much a part of the success of Site Safe Scotland has also been the close liaison with local contractors and plant hire companies who have willingly given their plant/equipment for the day to enable realistic practical demonstrations to be arranged at our events.
 
We are always looking for new ideas for our events. If you are interested in working with the Scotland WWT Working Group to deliver an event then please contact our group support:
