Award Winning Health and Safety is a Team Effort

Leading provider of forecourt services, E&S Environmental and AJ Bayliss, have won the Health and Safety Performance Award at this year’s APEA UK Petroleum Industry Awards. The award comes thanks to E&S’ encouragement of staff to come up with new ways to make their daily tasks safer and more efficient, through its own Innovation Award scheme.

Examples in their winning entry include the ‘Aco bolt T-bar’ invented by an E&S engineer to safely remove aco bolts and now used across the company’s team. Following his success, other engineers came forward with ways to improve working practices, prompting E&S to launch its own Innovation Award to recognise the ingenuity of its staff. Ideas now implemented by E&S include the development of range of long handled tools to improve body positioning in a variety of tasks and the provision of rock salt to make work areas safe in winter.

Ady Gamage, Quality Systems Co-ordinator for E&S Environmental Services commented: “There is no greater success than getting the engineers on board with improving working practices. By asking them to come up with ideas and them actually seeing some of them implemented we give them a sense of achievement and it also lets them know their voice is heard.

“We have had numerous ideas put forward by our teams that have now been put into place and the benefit has been massive and could ultimately prevent an accident from occurring. Winning the APEA’s award thanks to our own award scheme is a great achievement, one that will further encourage E&S staff to keep coming up with great ideas to make their jobs easier and safer.”

Announced on 7th November, the APEA Awards is open to the organisation’s members and recognises excellence in the Petroleum sector, focusing on the following categories: Innovation, Health and Safety, Quality, Environmental Protection, Service Station of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and Personal Contribution to the Industry in 2012/2013.

Excellent response. Contacted Adler & Allan with site location and description of incident on site. Shortly afterwards, I received a phone call confirming that a team had been dispatched and given an estimated time of arrival. Team arrived on site on time and completed the mop up effectively. Fantastic service, will cascade this incident to further promote your service.

…thanks for the assistance that your call out team provided to help us deal with the water ingress into our building here…I know we get a good service from yourselves with regards to looking after our fuel system but when called upon at such short notice to help out with the water leak, we received an excellent service once again.
