‘Almost entirely counterproductive’

leave a comment »

The culture at London’s Crossrail 1 worksites is “almost entirely counterproductive” to delivering the project safely, on time and on budget, according to a damning internal analysis seen by the Observer.

[“Crossrail managers accused of ‘culture of spying and fear'”, Daniel Boffey, The Observer, 26 April 2014]

[…] Leaked documents reveal a crisis in the £15bn Crossrail project, Europe’s largest construction site, with industrial relations close to collapse and workers too scared to report injuries for fear of being sacked. Crossrail’s managers are accused of photographing or videoing contractors’ staff who may be in danger and emailing it to others “with unmasked glee”.

[…] The report was compiled by independent consultants MindSafety, on the direction of Balfour Beatty, BeMo Tunnelling, Morgan Sindall and Vinci Construction, the companies behind BBMV, the joint venture developing two parts of the Crossrail project on sites at Whitechapel and Finsbury Circus.
