Thames Water recently held their sixth annual Excellence in Health and Safety Awards 2015/16. Those with shortlisted entries from across Thames Water and their supply chain gathered at the Millennium Hotel, Mayfair in London to celebrate health and safety successes. We are delighted to announce that we were not only recognized through our work as a part of Thames Water’s Joint Ventures (JVs) and Alliances, but also as MWH.
We are honored that the MWH Wellbeing Programme won the Health and Wellbeing Category. We were up against some stiff competition, so it was an incredible achievement for MWH to be announced as the winners. Thames Water were impressed with what we have put in place and the impact it has had on our employees.
The Optimise* JV were also shortlisted in two categories; Best Practice in Health and Safety Collaboration with the Northern Outfall Bridges project and Innovation of the Year with the Turners Road project. Again, we won in both these categories.
Finally, we are really pleased to announce that eight2O* won the Excellence in Health and Safety Performance category with their entry ‘Safe and Still Counting’ and that GBM* JV won the Best Practice in Health and Safety Achievement category.
It is important that we take the time to recognize all the great work we do, and equally rewarding when our clients tell us we are doing a great job. These awards reaffirm the outstanding commitment MWH dedicates to excellence, innovation and best practice in Health, Safety and Wellbeing for all our employees and co-workers.
