We are delighted to have received the prestigious ‘Health and Safety Initiative of the Year’ award at the 2015 Water Industry Achievement Awards.
The accolade was presented in recognition of the company’s long-running safety awareness initiative which delivers important messages to a key, high-risk audience - primary school age children. With animation as its chosen starting point, the initiative incorporates a range of elements including classroom activity, supporting teaching materials and accompanied site visits.
To date, the initiative has produced three award-winning school safety campaigns, the latest of which, Jack’s New Bike, centres on the theme of cycle safety in and around utility construction street works.
Charles Morrison, Chief Executive, Morrison Utility Services, commented:
“Since its launch four years ago, this programme has enabled us to communicate critical safety messages to the communities in which we work and is focused on engaging primary school audiences across the UK in an innovative and thought-provoking way. The response from our clients and these communities has been overwhelmingly positive and we are delighted that the initiative has received further recognition in the form of this prestigious Water Industry Achievement Award. This accolade is testament to the effectiveness of the programme over many years and the efforts of our contract and customer liaison teams who deliver it in line with their work on the frontline of upgrade and maintenance essential utility infrastructure programmes across the UK.”
Organised by industry publications WET News and Water & Wastewater Treatment, the Water Industry Achievement Awards reward outstanding innovation and best practice across the UK water industry. The awards are open to water companies, their contractors, consultants, sub-contractors and suppliers.
