Keeping T5 staff safe on the job

Angie Young, OH manager for Dura Diamond Healthcare, gave an insight into
the challenges of providing occupational care to staff working at Heathrow’s
Terminal 5 (T5).

Due to open in spring 2008, T5 will cost £4bn to build and will be the same
size as all of Heathrow’s other four terminals put together.

The site is divided into 16 projects and sub-divided into 147 sub projects,
which makes it a logistical challenge when offering OH services.

Services include, health risk elimination and reduction, developing positive
purchasing policies with procurement, and ensuring all workers are fit for
their role.
