Ferrovial Agroman recognised at the British Safety Council awards

Category: General / 13 May 2014

Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland have been internationally recognised for their outstanding commitment to Health and Safety by the British Safety Council.

The company has received several International Safety merit awards, for its organisations overall approach in the country, the C435 Crossrail Farringdon contract and the A8 Dualling Belfast to Larne project in Northern Ireland. 

Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland Managing Director Ignacio Clopes said winning the awards was a fantastic achievement.

“To be internationally recognised for our health and safety performance is outstanding,” said Ignacio.

“Congratulations to our dedicated teams for the time and effort they put in each day to ensure the safety of our workforce.

“We always have to remember that we work in an industry that has one of the highest risks of injury. It is therefore everyone’s responsibility when working on site to keep health and safety at the core of every decision made.”

The British Safety Council awards are independently assessed and benchmarked on a company’s health and safety performance, rewarding best practice and maintaining the highest standards.

Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland Health and Safety Director Robert Hackett said health and safety will always be a core value on every project.

“The problem with treating ‘safety as a priority’; is that priorities change depending on the person and the situation,” said Robert.

“By having the safety of our workforce as a non-negotiable value, we are committing that we will support any person who makes a decision to stop work if they feel unsafe.

“I believe this approach has embedded a unique culture on our construction sites that has been instrumental in achieving these three awards.”
