Safety first approach puts Grundon in line for top award

Grundon Waste Management’s commitment to health and safety, its investment in training and the launch of a cycle safety campaign; have seen the company shortlisted in the health and safety category of this year’s prestigious CWIM Sustainability and Resource Awards.

Grundon has made the final four in the category for the GJF Delivering Health and Safety Best Practice Award.

Toni Robinson, Compliance Manager, said: “We’re thrilled to have made it through to the awards night and delighted that our efforts and investment have been acknowledged by our peers within the industry.

“We take health and safety very seriously indeed and are focused on creating a safe environment for our employees, contractors, visitors and members of the public.”

Among the company’s achievements have been a 54.5% reduction in total number of RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases, and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013) reportable accidents per year from 2013-2015.

Every year a special Grundon Safety Week is organised and, during 2016, the business has spent half a million pound investment on upgrading and installing advanced safety features to both existing and new vehicles.

In addition, in June this year, Grundon launched a new cycle safety campaign, aimed at helping both cyclists and Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) drivers to see the road through different eyes and to commit to good behaviour, safe cycling and safe driving.

The winner of the award, which celebrates examples of industry best practice, will be announced on November 3 at the CIWM Sustainability and Resource Awards presentation evening at the Marriott Grosvenor Square, London.
