Safety first for City
Monday, February 27, 2017

This week, City has recognised its employees for going the extra mile in the pursuit of health and safety excellence.

City, one of the UK’s largest, privately owned facilities management (FM) companies presented the award to the 70-strong team which delivers cleaning and maintenance across more than 300 petrol forecourts for one of the world’s leading integrated oil and gas providers.

The team was recognised for their sustained efforts and proactive approach to health and safety, resulting in no reported incidents for over two years and consistently high scores on compliance of work audits, carried out by the customer.

Campbell Murdoch, Managing Director for City Facilities Management said:

“Health and safety is at the forefront of our business and we firmly believe that our employees should return home safely each day.

“This award is the first of its kind for City and is testament to the outstanding performance by our team and their continued commitment to keeping our employees safe.”

The introduction of a number of initiatives including Safety Days, which are attended by employees at all levels and driver safety monitoring has ensured a continued focus on improving health and safety throughout the City business.

Tom Bardwell, Regional Health and Safety Manager for City said:

“We are working hard across our business to improve our health and safety results year upon year and strive to keep our employees safe each and every day.

“The performance of our teams when out on site is vitally important to us and recognising employees for their hard work and determination will only serve to enhance not only our health and safety performance but also the service that we deliver on behalf of our clients.”
