Health and Safety Award - GE Awards 2021
Candidates for this award must demonstrate an initiative, operations process, innovation or piece of equipment that has clearly contributed to improving health and safety on a ground engineering project, between January 2020 and July 2021. The award can be for a company-wide policy that benefits geotechnical operations, an initiative or technique applied to a specific ground engineering project. Entries must demonstrate how safety risks associated with the geotechnical element of the work or for the geotechnical workforce were reduced.
We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic might have had an adverse effect on some companies, initiatives and projects. We still strongly encourage companies and teams to enter this year’s GE Awards, as their pandemic response strategy will also be considered in the judging.
- Quantifiable safety improvement that delivers a real step-change in ground engineering rather than bringing company procedures up to general industry standards
- Techniques used to deliver initiative and communicate the new approach
- Demonstration of employee acceptance and involvement in delivery
- Involvement of others in the supply chain and stakeholders
