The British Precast Association have awarded Creagh Concrete the prestigious best practice for Health & Safety Award. The much sought after accolade is testament to the every day practice of health and safety around our plants but also to the constant strive for review and improvement.
The project we submitted represents a comprehensive review of our stressing operations resulting in an exemplary standard of engineering control over noise and RCS combined with improved visibility and protection for prestressing operations. The improvements to the Roco Multiangle Saws reduce noise at source, removing operator reliance on PPE and the introduction of high visibility bed covers decrease the likelihood of any breach of the exclusion zone while stressing operations are taking place.
Along with our day-to-day activities, which include conducting rigorous risk assessments and incident logistics, our health and safety team have been recognised for their overall wellbeing strategy aimed at helping employees stay safe in the workplace.
Paul Feely Deputy MD for Creagh and Head of Health & Safety said: “We are very pleased to accept this accolade. We take our health and safety responsibilities extremely seriously and it is very satisfying that British Precast has recognised this by awarding us for best practice. It is no mean feat to achieve and everyone at Creagh plays their part around health and safety – we are continuously striving to improve our employees and practices’.
Alan Moore from Creaghs health & safety team was presented with the award during a ceremony at the Mariott Hotel in Leicester on 05 July.
