Target Zero

Target Zero is Crossrail’s overarching Health and Safety Philosophy. It is based on three core principles:

  • we all have the right to go home unharmed every day,
  • we believe that all harm is preventable and
  • we must all work together to achieve this.

Target Zero 3 principles, associated 5 golden rules and high risk activities are shared as part of the learning legacy.  These may be of interest to other clients on major projects considering their H&S Strategy.

A learning legacy paper is planned for publication in March 2018 which will capture the evolution of Target Zero and the associated initiatives, messaging and support material over the course of the programme.

An additional learning legacy paper will review the effectiveness of various contractor behavioural safety initiatives and they have been applied against the Target Zero programme.
