Outstanding safety performance recognised with Sword of Honour
The Hertel team at Wylfa power station has been awarded the prestigious British Safety Council’s Sword of Honour for outstanding health and safety management.
Representatives from the multi-discipline construction and maintenance services company will receive the sword in an exclusive ceremony at the historic Goldsmiths’ Hall in London this month.
The awards are part of the British Safety Council’s drive to acknowledge and celebrate exemplary health, safety and environmental management in the workplace.
To qualify for the Sword of Honour, Hertel was required to identify the most significant risks to staff and operations and provide evidence of its health and safety system in application.
The awards are open only to those organisations that have achieved the maximum five-star rating at one or more of their sites. Hertel received its second five star safety audit at Wylfa power station in 2011, as well as reaching the momentous milestone of 10 years with no lost time incidents.
Ian Fraser, Hertel’s Site Operations Manager at Wylfa power station, said, “The Sword of Honour tops off a fantastic year of safety achievements at Wylfa. As a recommendation of our health and safety performance, it marks Hertel out as a conscientious company with a genuine commitment to the well-being of everyone on site.”
