Trio of health and safety awards for FM Conway

Sir Frank Davies Trophy winners

Infrastructure services company picks up three top trophies at this year’s MPA awards event

FM Conway secured three awards at this year’s Mineral Products Association (MPA) Health and Safety Awards, including the prestigious Sir Frank Davies Trophy, which recognizes outstanding excellence in health and safety in companies with less than 1,000 employees.

The company was commended for its commitment to keeping the well-being of its staff, its customers and the public front of mind in all their operations. In addition, the judges praised FM Conway’s People First programme, a major campaign to raise health and safety awareness across the business.

 

The company also beat 18 other submissions to secure the TUC Worker Involvement Trophy, awarded for the best health and safety initiative that encourages workforce participation and leadership. 

FM Conway were recognized by the judges for their revamp of near-miss reporting procedures, including the development of a near-miss smartphone and tablet app through which 90% of near misses are now reported.

Finally, the company beat 30 other applicants to win the TfL (Transport for London) Reducing Occupational Road Risk Trophy for its Professional Drivers Recognition Scheme.

Introduced by the FM Conway transport team in December 2014, the scheme reduces occupational road risk by rewarding those drivers who display a continued commitment to best practice and improving their skills.

Andrew Cox, director of safety, health, environment and quality at FM Conway, commented: ‘We are delighted to have been recognized at the 2015 MPA awards. Health and safety is at the forefront of our business and our triple success at this year’s ceremony is testament to our staff’s enduring commitment to making sure that everyone continues to go home safe at the end of every day.’
