The winner of the Safety Award, sponsored by MyCrane, has been revealed.

Safety - Gulf Stream Marine

For the Safety Award, our winner – Gulf Stream Marine – demonstrated how it puts safety first, starting with the development of a safety management system (SMS) and an online HSEQ platform that allows the company to conduct incident investigations, audits and inspections, and implement corrective and preventative actions. The comprehensive approach to safety includes constant communication and engagement with its teams from daily meetings, a weekly HSEQ newsletter and programme announcements.

As one of our judges said: “A great example of safety embedded within the culture of an organisation.” Another commented on the company’s performance: “It is notable that on TRIR and LTIR, it reached a better rate than the industry’s average. Moreover, the handling of 3.5 million cu m of wind turbine components without a single incident makes Gulf Stream a worthy winner.”

This year, we had a number of strong candidates that showcased commendable safety processes and culture including deugro, DHL Industrial Projects, Fagioli, Hareket and Osprey.

Meanwhile, Mammoet was shortlisted for a review and enhancement of its branded workwear – which resulted in introducing new high-visibility colours to the uniform design – and Sarens for its Wind Speed Disc tool which addresses near miss incidents with wind forces.
