EMPLOYEE NAMED HEALTH & SAFETY CHAMPION AT UTILITY WEEK STARS AWARDS 22nd June 2016

EMPLOYEE NAMED HEALTH & SAFETY CHAMPION AT UTILITY WEEK STARS AWARDS

Morrison Utility Services (MUS) First Line Manager James Osborne has received the prestigious Health & Safety Champion (Individual) accolade at the 2016 Utility Week Stars Awards. 

James, who works on the Western Gas Alliance (WGA - Wales & West Utilities, Morrison Utility Services, AMEC) contract team, received the award for using the format of film to show how everyday operational tasks can be made safer through simple, mental risk assessment. 

Created in his own time and covering various health and safety issues, James’ hard-hitting, ‘bite-size’ films are tailored to deliver key safety messages with maximum impact. The films feature regularly in WGA team briefs and are scheduled for use across other MUS contract teams.

MUS Director of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Paul Kerridge comments: “James embodies the MUS ‘aiming for zero harm’ ethos. Leading by example, he acts as a hugely effective interface with teams across the WGA contract, working in a collaborative way to identify and resolve safety issues and translating this learning into engaging, interactive training for the frontline workforce. The films provide an additional dimension to safety training as participants are encouraged to analyse their personal actions, and those of others, and this award is thoroughly deserved.”

The Utility Week Stars Awards celebrate the unsung heroes in the utility industry and took place at the Hilton Manchester on 17th June.
