The UK’s leading supplier of building and construction materials was awarded the John Crabbe Memorial Trophy for ‘Outstanding Excellence in Health and Safety’ at the prestigious ceremony in London last week.

Lynda Chase Gardener, Chair of the QPA, commented: “This year the independent panel of judges received a record number of entries from UK quarry companies across the different award categories. In an industry that is committed to improving its health and safety performance, I congratulate Aggregate Industries on clearly demonstrating what can be achieved with committed leadership and an enthusiastic and innovative workforce.”

In the last year alone, We have improved our health and safety performance by 30%, an improvement of 50% on 2007 figures. These significant enhancements have been achieved through a number of initiatives, including producing safety cards for hauliers, sending its employees safety text alerts to their mobile phones on a weekly basis and introducing specific actions at production facilities to minimise the potential for work-related accident

Colin Jenkins, our Managing Director of the Aggregate Products Division, said: “Ultimately, a safe business is a good business. This is even more important in the construction industry, which is why we have invested heavily in our processes and procedures to ensure the safest environment for our employees and customers. Our overall aim is to make everyone within the business unconsciously safe, and as a team we are well on our way to achieving this.

“We are delighted to have won this award. However, this is only a milestone on a long journey. We are not a company that rests on its laurels, and we will continue to raise the bar within the industry moving forward.”
