Sellafield Chief Executive Health & Safety Award for the third year running

May 5, 2017

United Kingdom

Yesterday, our UK team was awarded the Sellafield Chief Executive Health & Safety Award for the third year running! This is the most prestigious safety award to be claimed at the annual awards ceremony and so to win it 3 years running is an honourable achievement. Paul McKeown, General Manager, has given special thanks to both the HSEQ team on site, but also to KAEFER’s overall Technical Services Department. Without the department’s knowledge and expertise, we would not have the working processes & procedures in place to allow us to send operatives home safely every day. Congratulations!
