EDF Energy: The Greatest Show on Safety

Internal communications

The Greatest Show on Safety

The Team


Picture the scene. It's a Sunday afternoon and you're rushing to finish decorating the bathroom before it's back to work on Monday. You're at the top of the ladder painting, you reach a bit too far, the ladder wobbles…

This is a story of how the design of an innovative and highly creative internal communications campaign opened the minds of employees to health and safety issues in their own homes and has contributed to safer behaviour at work.

EDF Energy is one of the UK's largest energy companies, employing 20,000 people. It's not surprising that health and safety at work is paramount for a business of EDF Energy's size and reputation, but the health and well-being of EDF Energy's employees at home is a major concern. It impacts on staff morale, employment capacity and opportunity costs.
