Redhill, UK -- As a company providing both consultancy and construction services, health and safety is central to Black & Veatch operations in the UK. Since 1998, Black & Veatch has proudly won over 80 RoSPA Gold Awards, 22 Gold Medals and 7 President’s Awards.
“It is excellent that our health and safety performance has been recognised by RoSPA again this year and we are particularly proud to receive our 7th President’s Award” says Scott Aitken, Managing Director at Black & Veatch Water Europe. “At Black & Veatch we have developed a strong health and safety culture and we require our employees at all levels to contribute to our drive to improve. This focus to improve and enhance our safety culture is rooted in our established behavioural scheme, BOSS.”
Launched in 2007/8 the key focus of BOSS, which stands for ‘Behaviour on Safe Sites’, is leadership, positive reinforcement of the right behaviours and the active engagement of the workforce, including supply chain. Having integrated design and construction teams, it is possible, through BOSS, to ensure that the entire project team has collectively followed a uniform process that reduces risk and enhances safety from design development through to completion. The 2016 RoSPA awards help to support Black & Veatch’s drive to continually improve its safety performance and build on its already established safety culture.
