Health & Safety Awards - Rail Safety Week
The week of 25th September to 1st October was Rail Safety Week, an industry lead initiative focusing on rail safety for all. Rail Safety week aims to address, engage, promote and bring rail safety to the forefront of people’s minds across a dedicated week. During the week, our partner, Morgan Sindall, planned events across the country on all their sites covering various safety-related topics. Rail Safety Week offers contractors presentations and briefings to shed light on health and safety topics with the aim to improve safety on all working sites.
On the 26th of September, our Rail & Infrastructure Team Leader, Mark McDermott, attended the event in Glasgow alongside Morgan Sindall. At the event, one of Morgan Sindall's contractors was awarded for demonstrating outstanding health and safety management. Site Engineer Craig Miller was given the award for stopping all work during an incident that created unsafe conditions. Craig was presented with a high-value shopping voucher by Andrew Jellis, Managing Director of Morgan Sindall Rail & Electrification.
Thank you to Craig for his continued contribution to site safety. We are continuously working with our clients to ensure the safety of all our on-site staff and we look forward to the next safety awards.
