Behavioural safety training programme delivered for major construction project
Behavioural training specialist Azea were chosen to assist one of the world’s best known brands to improve their safety performance. Azea were asked to deliver a safety awareness session to over 250 employees at the new Guinness site in Dublin, Ireland. Guinness is currently building one of the biggest and most energy efficient breweries in the world and will have over 600 construction workers on site to deliver the project on time.
Training Director Bruce Durham said:
“We are now getting regular approaches from some of the biggest names in industry to assist them in enhancing their employees’ safety performance, due to the results that we consistently achieve for other large clients. We received fantastic feedback and the employees, both management and operatives, really bought into our energetic and engaging way of discussing safety”

Azea were approached as the three main contractors for the Guinness site, Diageo, John Sisk Builders and Krones, wanted to further improve on what is an already excellent culture towards safety. The main theme was to motivate the employees to report near misses and also good practice, so that both can be acted upon to improve the overall performance of the site.
The CDM co-ordinator for the site said:
“We have had many speakers in the past but I have never seen as much engagement with our operatives as Bruce created today. They actually enjoyed what Bruce was delivering, at times they were roaring with laughter, but they were all listening and what he said made total sense. Our employees all agreed that they could act on what Bruce was discussing, which bodes well for working with Bruce again in the future”
