All of Hanson UK’s operational sites will stop work for an hour on Monday 16 October, between 7 am and 8 am, in order to carry out a series of health, safety, and wellbeing related activities.

The aim of the stand-down is to get everyone thinking about their own safety and the safety of colleagues, drivers, contractors, and visitors, as the company works towards its target of zero harm.
