Morrison Utility Services.

Morrison Utility Services has won a best best practice award for its safety-first approach for the third year in a row.

The company was named as the winner of the 2015 NJUG (National Joint Utilities Group) ‘Avoiding Damage to Underground Assets’ award at a ceremony at the House of Commons, hosted by the Transport Select Committee chairman, Louise Ellman MP.

NJUG CEO Bob Gallienne said: “They have combined state of the art technology with smartphone technology, online assessments, and one-to-one training in order to significantly improve their safety performance. This protects both workers and underground assets during street work activities, something that is at the core of the NJUG Vision for Street Works.”

Paul Kerridge, safety, health, environment and quality director at Morrison Utility Services, added: “Winning this award for three consecutive years is testament to the focus we devote todriving safety and standards in the reduction of injury, disruption and damage caused by utility infrastructure strikes.

“We’re delighted that this safety-first approach to street works excavations has again been recognised by NJUG. However, there is no room for complacency and our mission is to identify new ways of working that will continue to set an industry wide benchmark.”
