Precast concrete award

Glenn Regan, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager at Forticrete received the award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety'

Forticrete, the UK's leading manufacturer of architectural masonry products, has been presented with three accolades, including the prestigious Gold award for Health and Safety Improvements, at the 2013 British Precast Best Practice Awards.

The award, which recognises Forticrete's continual improvement in the fields of behavioural, physical and occupational safety, came with a prestigious Red Seal, which highlights the organisation's success in reducing the number of accidents throughout its workforce in line with the British Precast's Concrete Targets Scheme (CT2015) over the past 12 months.

To cap off an already successful evening, Glenn Regan, the company's Health, Safety and Environmental Manager, was also recognised for his contribution to health and safety performance and improvement at the company, receiving the award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety'. Forticrete was also presented with the accolade of 'Runner up' in the 'Sustainability' category for its energy reduction efforts at its Leighton Buzzard site.

John Lambert, General Manager at Forticrete, commented: "At Forticrete, we have a long standing commitment to establishing and enforcing appropriate measures to control and monitor the health, safety and welfare of our employees. To have been recognised so enthusiastically for our dedication to continuous improvement across the entire business in this area is a fantastic achievement, and is testament to those who have invested significant time and effort into not only ensuring we are meeting our targets for health and safety at the company, but surpassing them."
