There were three main categories and a special international award. One of the catergories was ‘The Deeney Award for Most Inspiring Team or Organisation’. Named in honour of Kieron Deeney, who was killed tragically in an accident at work, and for the amazing contribution his wife, Jen, has made to the safety of others since his death.
Jen Deeney was in Blackpool to present her award to the winner, and the selected ‘highly commended’ teams and organisations.
Most Inspiring Team or Organisation – Storengy UK
Storegy UK was presented with the prize for Most Inspiring Team or Organisation 2012. In the construction of a gas storage facility, the company saw only one reportable incident in 1.8 million man hours of effort. The secret was the total team approach.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Rob Coyle, Managing Director of Lattitude Productions which organises the awards, said: “This was the first time we have run these awards and I think everyone was impressed with the standard of the entries. It just shows how much good work is going on to inspire people to behave more safely.”
