Pilkington: Middlesbrough Safety Triple

Pilkington Middlesbrough is celebrating a triple safety win with two national awards and the achievement of Level 5 in the European safety programme.


The branch, which has now worked seven years without a lost time injury, scored a double at the November's National Safety Awards organised by the Glass and Glazing Federation and British Glass. The first award was for employee contribution to safety and the second for the best safety performance by a site with fewer than 50 employees.

And, in October, Middlesbrough became the first UK processing and merchanting site to reach Level 5 of Pilkington's European Review and Evaluation Process. The certificate was presented to the employees by UK managing director David Pinder at the end of November.

"This has been a terrific few weeks for us," said general manager Gary Dobson. "These safety records are a fantastic achievement for the workforce - and it really is the workforce which takes the lead in safety here.

"Our safety performance is driven by all employees and I believe that is what makes it so successful. Like any good team, we have strength in depth."
