Farrans joins the Get It Right Initiative
Farrans Construction is now a member of the Get It Right initiative (GIRI), joining a group of UK construction industry experts, organisations and businesses actively improving productivity, quality, sustainability and safety in the construction sector by eliminating error.
GIRI is a not-for-profit membership organisation that has adopted a multi-disciplinary approach to tackling error. Its members include clients, consultants, contractors, regulators, educators, professional institutions and trade bodies who are working together, across the sector, to raise awareness about the challenges of error, and eliminate it.
Working groups cover design, metrics, skills, training and technology.
GIRI works with its members to create a culture and working environment to get it right from the start, change attitudes and harness leadership responsibility to reduce error and improve construction quality, productivity and safety and share knowledge about error reduction processes and systems. It seeks to engage all stakeholders in eliminating error from inception, through operation, to completion and improve skills across the sector creating a positive approach to pre-empting error.
Emma Harrison, quality manager in Farrans, said:
“GIRI is a fantastic organisation that has had a significant impact driving improvements in the construction industry. Within Farrans we have embarked on our own ‘Get it right first time’ approach and the lessons from GIRI will support our management and teams to implement the correct processes from the outset of a new contract. Our membership will provide us with access to GIRI tailored workshops, delivering outcomes as well as an opportunity to influence industry wide training and research to reduce error. They offer cutting edge pilot training schemes, conferences and forums which allow valuable shared lessons, best practice recommendations, solutions and opportunities to learn from our peers.”
