WJ Groundwater has introduced a new Health & Safety (H&S) initiative across its sites called The WJ CARE Card – Committed Aim to Raise Expectations of our staff and clients.
The objective behind the card is to encourage our staff to keep H&S at the forefront everytime they embark on a new task. The CARE card is available for front line WJ operatives to keep a note of any improvements that can be made to processes in order to avoid accidents – also to be able to increase the effectiveness of existing processes.
