REACH Beyond Zero Annual Safety Awards 2014 – celebrating outstanding safety performance

A memo from Arnold Steenbakker, CEO - Stork

I am pleased to announce we will be launching the nomination process for our REACH Beyond Zero Annual Safety Awards 2014 on 15 May. Safety is at the heart of everything we do and our Annual Safety Awards celebrate those who go over and above their ‘call of duty’ to drive safety improvements at Stork. Each and every day I see and hear stories about colleagues who truly make safety their number one priority. This is exactly the sort of behaviour and attitude that we want to celebrate and encourage here at Stork, so I ask that you take some time to think who is deserving of a nomination.

All Stork employees are eligible for a REACH Beyond Zero Annual Safety Award and this year we are seeking nominations in six categories; ‘Most promising individual’, ‘Incident Prevention’, ‘Best Safety Performance’, ‘Safety Innovation’ ‘Best Team of the Year’ and ‘Safety Leadership’. You can nominate via printed and online nomination forms which will be available from 15 May. More details how to do this will be communicated in due course.

This year we will be hosting four regional events in Trinidad (Americas), Aberdeen (UK & Africa), Netherlands (Continental Europe) and Perth (MECAP) which will be attended by Stork employees and key clients. If you think there are specific clients and contacts who would like to attend the event then please share their details with your line manager, invitations will be send out from May 15th onwards.

So, let’s get behind the 2014 Annual Safety Awards and celebrate outstanding safety performance together.
