CONSISTENT SAFETY PERFORMANCE LEADS TO THREE IN A ROW WITH NJUG

We have been named as the winner of the 2015 NJUG (National Joint Utilities Group) ‘Avoiding Damage to Underground Assets’ award for the third consecutive year.

The award recognises MUS for its multi-strand approach to the management of excavation procedures in the highway associated with utility delivery. The announcement was made at the annual NJUG Awards held at the House of Commons on 18th November and hosted by Chair of the Transport Select Committee, Louise Ellman MP.

NJUG CEO Bob Gallienne comments: “I am delighted that Morrison Utility Services has won the Avoid Damage to Underground Assets Award 2015. They have combined state of the art technology with smartphone technology, online assessments, and one-to-one training in order to significantly improve their safety performance. This protects both workers and underground assets during street work activities, something that is at the core of the NJUG Vision for Street Works.”

Paul Kerridge, Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) Director, Morrison Utility Services, comments: “Winning this award for three consecutive years is testament to the focus we devote to driving safety and standards in the reduction of injury, disruption and damage caused by utility infrastructure strikes. We’re delighted that this safety-first approach to street works excavations has again been recognised by NJUG. However, there is no room for complacency and our mission is to identify new ways of working that will continue to set an industry wide benchmark.”
