SAS has won two awards for implementing safe working practises and procedures at the Tottenham Court Road Crossrail site.
These accolades are issued by the principal contractor Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall (TWBN) to promote and incentivise safe working practises and good communication of safety issues on site.
The John Vahey Trophy was given to SAS in October for producing an exceptional accident report with proactive remedial actions following a recent safety audit.
The second commendation was awarded to SAS as part of the TWBN Observation Card scheme. The Observation Cards enable site operatives to raise Health and Safety concerns or suggest improvements. The cards are reviewed and actioned weekly but, every three months, a card is selected allowing employees and sub-contractors to give £500 to their chosen charity.
"We often get praise for the products we design, supply and install on our projects but we also put a lot of effort into the way we carry out our works and it’s nice to get recognition for that too. We decided to nominate The Church of Grace International (COGI) for the donation as they are a small charity with a connection to James Boadu in our site team." said Dan Collins, Project Manager.
Congratulations to Dan Collins, Luke Carter and the entire SAS team – well done!
