The presentation then moved on to recognise individuals from both the supply chain and commercial teams who had gone above and beyond when it comes to Health and Safety and the following colleagues were awarded the ‘2021 Special Recognition Awards’.
Heather Thompson, Transport Manager Newcastle-Under-Lyme
Steven commented how Heather has really challenged the Health and Safety culture at Newcastle and not just within the transport team. She has embraced the KPI’s and made it no longer “about the numbers” but understands the true value of engagement and discussion making this part of her daily routine.
John Russell, Assistant Transport Manager Radstock
Did you know John is a movie star?! John starred in our Driver Safety Campaign “A Day in the Life of A Driver”. It’s because of this and John’s support of the Manual Handling Risk Assessment Video programme and his continued proactive approach within the transport team at Radstock he is recognised for an invested interest in Health and Safety.
Greg Edwards, South Sales Manager
Greg, has never shied away from his responsibilities as a line manager or the role he plays on farm raising the profile with our customers to make it safer for our drivers. He proactively engages with the Health and Safety Team on a number of topics and is keen to lead the way and set the example for others.
Alister Davies, Beef & Sheep Sales Manager
When Alister received his award, he was out doing what he loves most; working with a customer. Alister has constructively challenged the approach towards safety on farm and worked with sites to achieve practical, safe solutions.
