Warrington-based Boulting had their continuing commitment to the highest standards of health and safety performance recognised by the receipt of two high profile health and safety awards from AstraZeneca at the AstraZeneca AZCAS Construction Awards in March.
The Boulting team received The AstraZeneca Construction Award for both the Alderley Park and Macclesfield sites in recognition of their ongoing professionalism and proactive management of SHE activities within their Design, Engineering Construction and Term Maintenance services at both these sites.
Boulting was also awarded the Gold Standard Safety Certificate associated with their Design, Engineering, Construction and Term Maintenance activities in relation to their AstraZeneca Avlon Works services at Bristol.
Additional recognition came in the form of Man of the Year Awards presented to both Sam Wheeler at Macclesfield and Paul Webb at Alderley Park for their outstanding individual contributions to the overall safety performance at their respective sites.
These 2013 awards recognise that Boulting have incurred no injuries or accidents whilst working on the above contracts.
Focusing on behavioural safety and the establishment of proactive and effective safe systems of work, the AZCAS Annual Awards have two main purposes. Firstly it provides the opportunity to identify safety improvements that can be implemented on future projects, and secondly the establishment of an ideas session. The event is concluded by the award ceremony, which recognises outstanding company and individual safety performances on AstraZeneca construction projects worldwide undertaken over the last twelve months.
During the same 12-month period Boulting also provided multi-disciplinary Engineering Services to National Grid, LNG Storage, Esso, Tata Steel and Seabank Power, with zero accidents or incidents.
"Safety is given the highest priority within Boulting and this award for the second consecutive year has amplified our continuing efforts to maintain the highest of standards," commented Executive Director of Boulting, Terry Marston.
"This is a fantastic performance and great testimony to the safety culture that is engrained within Boulting as a whole. Winning this award again is brilliant for all of our head office and site-based teams and illustrates their continuing efforts to maintain such high standards. We are very proud of all of them.
