The MPA recognised Forterra with a Special Award for the progress it’s made in improving the health and safety culture and introducing changes to make the workplace safer for all. Much of what they’ve been doing reflects the Vision Zero Core values.
They submitted seven Topic awards, reflecting the improvements they’ve been making. One was a finalist, two were highly commended and the remaining four were given Certificates of Merit. The video link is to the entry for which they were a finalist - Remote stressing via automated pin locator
The judges were very impressed with the work they’ve been doing to make the operation of pre-stressing concrete safer, an operation that can cause fatal or very serious injuries if things go wrong.
In line with its earlier comments about the importance of collaboration and sharing –the theme of this conference – the MPA would like to announce a special award for this company for its contributions to this year’s health and safety awards and the progress it has been making in health and safety.
