Lindum Construction has won an International Safety Award in recognition of the safe working practices employed during the complex works being undertaken at One The Brayford in Lincoln for client Jackson and Jackson.
Organised by The British Safety Council, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have shown a real dedication to keeping their workers and workplaces healthy and safe.
David Bellingham, Lindum Group Health & Safety Manager, said “To be one of a small number of organisations in the world to have won this International Safety Award this year recognises the importance we place on health and safety best practice and demonstrates our on-going commitment and investment in safeguarding our employees, subcontractors, suppliers and the wider community in which we operate.”
Simon Gregory, MD of Lindum Construction, added “The knowledge, experience and commitment of our Construction Team managing this complex project has been crucial in achieving this award. On a tight city centre site and a very busy location, the project involves adding two additional storeys to an existing 1970s five storey building, reconfiguring the elevations and interior and extending the structure on three sides. Safety has been our prime concern whilst managing the logistics, being considerate of the public and the neighbouring properties and managing the 60 workers on site using a variety of materials, equipment and machinery in use, including the 35 metre high tower crane. This award recognises the priority we place on safety and our continuing commitment to training and employee welfare and we are very proud to have been awarded it.”
Lindum Construction is listed as one of the winners of the International Safety Awards for 2017 which are drawn from all sizes and sectors from countries ranging from Africa, Asia, India and the Middle East to the UK and mainland Europe.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Lindum Construction on their success in winning an International Safety Award “The British Safety Council commends Lindum Construction on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and efforts to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
“Sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks at work brings lasting benefits for workers, their families, businesses and society as a whole. By celebrating and sharing the achievements of the winners of the International Safety Awards, we encourage businesses all over the world to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business. Our warmest congratulations to all the winners.”
The winners are invited to receive their awards at the International Safety Awards Gala Dinner on Friday 5 May 2017. The black-tie event will be hosted by broadcaster Gabby Logan at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
