Principles and strategies of beyond zero:
The principles of the beyond zero concepts are few and straightforward. They will help to enable our customers, suppliers, employees, and communities to participate in achieving these goals. Beyond Zero recognizes that the key elements to success are people, working together as partners.
1. Full engagement:
Beyond Zero encourages all employees across Emmetts throughout our supply chain to be full participants in achieving our goals. We are committed to respecting the dignity of all people and treating them with fairness, honesty, and openness.
2. Beyond Zero philosophy:
This philosophy is based on creating a collaboration between our organization and its employees, customers, suppliers, and community so that together we can achieve zero harm through business activities.
3. Beyond Zero leaders:
Our leaders are committed to developing skills, knowledge, and understanding in their people that will support them to achieve the principles of Beyond Zero. They value working with others, setting clear expectations, and providing opportunities for success so that all individuals can learn from experience, grow and contribute effectively.
4. Being partners in safety:
Beyond Zero values the people and organizations that we work with as partners in achieving our goals. We value developing strong relationships, sharing information, mutual learning, and respect, and will not tolerate bullying or harassment of any form in any situation.
5. Beyond Zero culture:
Our commitment to safety is demonstrated through our vision and values. This is supported by embracing a culture that values open and responsive communication, sharing information about safety performance, learning from incidents and near misses, and actively seeking to improve health and safety practices.
6. Engaging with our suppliers:
We value those business relationships where we can develop a partnership based on the principles of Beyond Zero. We expect all suppliers to demonstrate a commitment to achieving Beyond Zero goals through their management systems, training, and practices.
7. Promoting health and safety:
Beyond Zero encourages all employees to develop an appreciation of the factors that affect health and safety, provide opportunities for new skills development in areas that are identified as being essential to project-specific performance improvements, and promote a culture where ideas are shared willingly across the business.
8. Setting an example:
Beyond Zero recognizes that as a leader in the construction industry, we have a responsibility to lead by example and create positive change throughout our organization.
9. Promoting continuous improvement:
We recognize the need for ongoing learning and development of health and safety practices across Emmetts and will measure progress against stated targets.
10. Beyond Zero tools:
The specific tools and resources that will be used to successfully deliver our goals are described throughout this website. They include information on how best practices can be delivered, training opportunities, incident reporting processes, auditing of management systems and safety equipment.
These tools have been developed through extensive experience in implementing health and safety management systems, and feedback from our employees, customers, suppliers, and community.
Beyond zero awards:- a prize for a rhetoric art(bzaa)
The BZAA is a new award that aims to recognize the best rhetorical artwork of the year. This includes work done as part of research, design, and development efforts; as well as those works developed after such activities (i.e., as artistic or entertainment products). “Rhetoric Art” is broadly defined as work that has been created to engage, persuade, teach, inform, or entertain through the effective use of language and/or visual elements.

Beyond zero campaign strategy:
A campaign strategy is a plan to achieve certain goals within a limited time. It’s usually employed by companies who have decided they need promotion for their products or services but have not yet decided the scope of the promotional effort.
The “beyond zero awards” were formed with an objective to engage students into various STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) related domains. These awards have been formed by a team led by Prof Dr. Anish Kohli from Manipal University.
The “beyond zero campaign strategy” will be a 3 pronged approach to promote these awards across all schools in Indian, the International academic arena(erences, seminars, etc.) where many students are expected to participate, and finally, across all colleges in India.
The campaign strategy will outline the complete plan to promote these awards on various social media channels, through outbound marketing efforts, etc. A special focus will be given to building an online community around the beyond zero awards.
Achievement of beyond zero campaign:
Achieved a total of 20,000 views on social media sites, college campuses, and school students from across India.
established an online community for the awards with around 3000 members. A proper CRM(Customer Relationship Management) system was also implemented to handle all interactions among members of the community.
