National design and construction company Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) has picked up not one, not two, but three health and safety awards working as part of Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s Capital Delivery Alliance.
The Alliance has been presented with the Health and Safety Excellence and Healthy Work Awards at the Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water 10th Annual Health and Safety Conference, and presented with a prestigious RoSPA Gold Award for Health and Safety from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
The Alliance was formed two years ago, in readiness for the start of AMP6. It is a collaborative working enterprise comprising five capital delivery partners (CDPs – MMB, Skanska, Morgan Sindall, Arcadis and Arup), all of whom are all working closely with Welsh Water to ensure safe and efficient delivery of the AMP6 investment programme.
The awards are recognition for all of the hard work and commitment of the Alliance partners in Year 1 of AMP6.
Quality, Environment and Safety (QES) Advisor for MMB, Jason Handley, said, “To achieve these three awards is a tremendous first step for the Alliance and only point towards bigger and better things in the future.”
Nick Parkin, Head of Alliance at Welsh Water, commented, “This is a great achievement for the Alliance, which is down to the hard work and commitment of the Health and Safety Professional’s from each of our businesses working collaboratively, sharing knowledge, experience and best practice.”
Creating a world-class health and safety culture is at the heart of the Capital Delivery Alliance. A variety of innovative approaches are used – including the use of visual standards (pictured) which have been adopted by the Alliance – to engage employees and improve standards.
Awards like this demonstrate our on-going commitment to achieving zero injuries and zero instances of work-related ill-health.
