The judges said “For Northumbrian Water Group, the promotion of Health and Safety issues and the avoidance or mineralization of accidents or exposure to any hazardous environments is a fundamental requirement for all stakeholders. From the outset, the Forum has been about openness, honesty and one of shared responsibility, with strong leadership and camaraderie throughout. The Forum has and will continue to be willing to listen and learn from other examples of best practice.”
