Current MEICA AFR in the South West is 0 having received no RIDDORs in the last 3 years. As a recent initiative on our existing MEICA framework, we have undertaken a comprehensive health and safety review of all its site-level safe systems of work, involving broad consultations and input from site operatives and subject matter experts.
A detailed risk assessment of all identified activities has been completed, which was used to identify and inform high-risk (both from a health and safety perspective and from a business-critical level) activities, from which a suite of MEICA-specific Safe Systems of Work has been prepared, in line with the evolution of the framework and following feedback for continuous improvement.
This initiative allows accurate information to be immediately available to our workforce and supply chain to further enhance our approach to health & safety and the quality of our delivery going forward.

An excellent example to others of what can be achieved through the use of BREEAM with a well-informed client and design team. "Director of BREEAM BRE
