PHC Launch Safety Recognition Award

PHC Launch Safety Recognition Award

There is no higher priority for an organisation than the safety and well-being of their workforce. At Poole Harbour Commissioners we want to encourage, recognise and reward colleagues who have gone above and beyond their duties, and who innovate and promote safer ways of working.

Therefore, this month we are proud to announce the launch of our ‘Safety Champion’ scheme. The new scheme will see individuals nominated by fellow employees and supervisors, for their outstanding commitment to improving the safety and well-being of their co-workers, as well as visitors to the Port. The nominations will be collated and a new ‘Safety Champion’ selected on a quarterly basis.

The new quarterly award will be judged by Safety and Security Manager, Dave Laut who said  “When employees go above and beyond to adhere to standards, watch out for one another or suggest improvements, it goes a long way to making PHC a better place to work. The introduction of our ‘Safety Champion’ award is designed to recognise and show appreciation to those employees that want to make a difference”.

And our first winner is….

Our thanks and congratulations to the first winner of the PHC Safety Champion Award, Mike Legg. Having completed his apprenticeship with PHC, Mike is one of the port’s fully qualified electricians and was nominated by our Safety and Security Manager himself, for his “can do” attitude.

Commenting on the nomination, Dave Laut said: “Throughout the difficult period that we’re all currently facing, Mike has worked tirelessly to support not only PHC and the Port, but also BCP Council. He always ensures that safe working practices are followed, highlights concerns and is happy to offer his advice and opinion. 

During a recent power outage Mike was onsite to assist and advise SSE, enabling the Port to continue operations and ensuring that critical monitoring equipment was up and running in a timely manner. Mike’s attitude is most definitely ‘can do’ he’s an asset to the PHC family”. 

Well done Mike!
