SafeTea Break campaign is back
31 October 2016
3M’s SafeTea Break campaign is back with new material to further improve workplace health and safety, following its success last year.
More than 1800 companies took part in the first initiative, launched in 2015, which aims to encourage health and safety managers to make the most of short periods during the day to educate staff on health and safety topics, including long latency diseases.
The SafeTea Break pack, developed in partnership with Safety Groups UK, is a toolkit filled with questions and discussion points to engage employees and make them think about key risks to their health and safety at work.
The science-based technology company has added three new topics – Wellbeing, Slips and Trips and Think for 30, which is another 3M developed programme designed to get employees thinking about potential hazards before starting a task.
Richard Davies, senior marketer at 3M, said: “We were absolutely delighted by the success of the SafeTea Break last year and that so many health and safety managers have found it to be an effective way to engage with their workforce.
“For this year, we decided we wanted to build on the campaign even further and add new material so it can help more people discuss these important health and safety issues. The three new topics are very relevant to most workplaces, so are going to make a great addition to the pack.”
Once again, 3M will be making a £50 donation to Safety Groups UK for every SafeTea Break feedback form uploaded to the 3M website: www.3M.co.uk/safetea
