The Health and Safety Officer briefly introduced the report and invited questions.
The Chairman asked that in future the Committee was furnished with more data from contractors on accidents at their respective sites. She also said she was surprised by Stevenage Borough Council’s (SBC) decision not to take part in a joint procurement exercise for lone worker devices.
The Health and Safety officer and Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development (HR and OD) said that work was already being done to establish a framework for contract managers to report more extensively and this data would be presented to the Committee in due course. It was also explained to Members that SBC had now decided to take part in a joint procurement exercise. It was hoped that a contract could be incepted by 1 April 2021.
