Costain Skanska JV Wins RoSPA Gold
29 July 2016
The Costain Skanska JV (CSJV) team working on Crossrail’s C360 Shafts & Headhouses project has won a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award for Occupational Health and Safety.
The award is based on an organisation's individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria. Entrants must provide evidence of a good health and safety management system by answering key performance questions and supporting the answers with a concise portfolio of relevant documentation.
“We’re delighted to receive a RoSPA Gold, which celebrates excellence in safety performance. It’s the most sought after accolade in our industry, offering contractors the opportunity to prove their ongoing commitment to raising safety standards. Our successes to date have been built on hard work, close collaboration with our partners and teamwork. The team have set their sights on achieving much more in 2016,” said Stephen Duncan, the Project Manager.
During 2016, the team also received a Considerate Contractors Scheme Gold Award for the fifth time in succession.
The C360 scope now includes civils, architecture and mechanical and engineering fit out at five strategic shafts located in central and east London. Crossrail is a 118 kilometre high frequency rail route that, once finished, will run from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through twin-bore 21 km tunnels under central London, before forking at Stepney Green for Shenfield near Brentwood and Abbey Wood in southeast London.
“It is great for the team to get recognition for their efforts and commitment in driving a strong safety culture and a being part of a project that successfully considers its impact on the local community,” said Andy Mooney, the Project Director.
