Steel and Tube Safety Awards

Contractor Safety Award Winner: sgfleet


On the 10th September, sgfleet attended the annual Steel and Tube Safety Awards. This is the second time these awards have been held and sgfleet won the Contractor Safety Award.

This award was in recognition of the work sgfleet completed with the Chain and Rigging Ford Transit Vans. sgfleet completed a health and safety review of these transits and made a number of design changes and recommendations to the vans. 

During the replacement of these vans the following changes were implemented:

  • safer flooring material
  • lighting design changes
  • improved side and rear steps
  • additional grab handles
  • cable storage
  • wall mounts for compressors
  • wall mounted air lines

All the improvements were managed by sgfleet during the build stage and the result was a safer and fit for purpose testing van.

Steel and Tube is a very prestigious Health and Safety campaigner and this award is a huge honour for sgfleet.
