SHEPLY ENGINEERS LTD ACHIEVE HEALTH & SAFETY MILESTONE ON THE SELLAFIELD SITE:

The Shepley Group Sellafield Site teams are delighted to have reached a significant Health & Safety milestone . June 16-2019 marked this day as 10 years, 3650 days & over 14.5 million man hours worked, since their last RIDDOR event. This is a fantastic achievement.

The last time there was a RIDDOR event on the Sellafield Site:

·        Gordon Brown was British Prime Minister

·        Manchester United had just lost 2-0 to FC Barcelona in the European Cup Final

·        Microsoft had just released Windows 7.

·        “Boom Boom Pow” by The Black Eyed Peas was top of the charts.

·        The Nokia 5230 was the top selling phone at 159 million (iPhone 3GS was second with 35 million sold).

The employees’ participation in the Health & Safety process over the years has been a major contributory factor in this result. The Shepley Group (a BECBC member) have a very positive Health & Safety culture within the business which is reflected in this achievement & can clearly be seen every day when the work force conduct themselves, which was recognised recently, when the Shepley Group was awarded the ECIA safe working award, and has achieved the Rospa Order of Distinction, 22 years “gold” award 

Nick Houghton (Shepley Group MD) and all of his management team wish to congratulate everyone in the group (Shepley Engineers, PPS Electrical) on outstanding safety performance over the last 10 years. All colleagues within the Group should be proud of their efforts and dedication and remain vigilant in our focus on this critical area.

“The safety of our colleagues is the most critical responsibility we all have. Each and every day, we should come to work knowing that we will be safe.  Congratulations and thank you all on this outstanding achievement. Always remember that if your scope of work changes then CHANGE = STAR.
