Viridor and its construction partners Lagan Construction Group and CNIM are celebrating the achievement of working one million man hours without a lost time accident (LTA) during the construction of the Energy Recovery Facility at Trident Park, Cardiff.
600+ employees were working on the site at the peak of construction from a wide range of trades, all ensuring that the facility is delivered safely and on schedule.
“This accomplishment is the direct result of the teams’ commitment to safety, employee involvement and accountability. The most important point has always been to provide a safe environment for our people on site and we work together to make any single operation as safe as possible.”Mike McGuire, Construction Director at Lagan Construction Group
“I would like to thank and congratulate everyone working on site for their ongoing commitment and excellent work to ensure a safe and timely delivery of this project. The individuals working on site have taken a proactive and collective approach to Health and Safety, which I am sure has been a key factor in the safety record of the Project to date.”Donald Renfrew, Head of Construction Health & Safety at Viridor
As a celebration of this important achievement, the partnership hosted a team lunch for the 220 employees currently working on site.
The Energy Recovery Facility is currently undergoing hot commissioning and is due for completion in December 2014.
