Michael Bower, Project Manager for Stork Subsea, was awarded an IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) Certificate of Merit by the organisation’s North East of Scotland Branch during a ceremony in Aberdeen, UK on Friday 7 September.

The awards celebrate the efforts of people who, despite not working in health and safety, have made a difference to staff morale, boosted wellbeing, or reduced injury and ill-health in their workplace.

Michael won the award for managing a diving team to more than 125,000 manhours without a lost time incident, while carrying out IRM (inspection, repair and maintenance) activities for Maersk Oil UK on company’s Janice Alpha FPU (floating production unit) in the North Sea.

On the safety success of the Janice Alpha project, Mick Horrocks, Project Manager for Maersk Oil UK, said: “I’d like to thank Michael and his team, for the support given us to deliver an incident free workscope at our Janice Alpha installation. They have worked with key parties to deliver our Maersk values and embed a positive safety culture. These efforts have not gone un-noticed; we recognise and appreciate all the efforts put into maintaining the focus on safe delivery of this project.”

Michael Bower, said: “I am very pleased to have received this recognition but it would not have been possible without the hard work and determination of my team. We always place safety as the number one priority and that is shown with the excellent safety performance we delivered on the Maersk contract and continue to achieve on other projects.”
