"During my time at Northern Counties Safety Group it is evident that Addison Plant regard safety as being equally important as quality and production.
At the core of their safety culture is an active involvement from the directors and senior management, which recognises that people are Addison Plants greatest asset.
It is positive and encouraging to see that the motivation to continually improve their safety culture is helping drive down accidents in our industry, with this years figures being at an all time low.
Even in these tough times for construction, Addison Plant have implemented a successful health and safety management system that should be seen as a benchmark to other civil engineering organisations.
With the company’s continual improvement and commitment to safety, it is my belief that Addison Plant are on the right track."

PROJECT SUMMARY The scheme covered widening the A19 north and southbound approaches from 2 lanes to 4 with a 100 metre long retaining wall adjacent to the A19 southbound to facilitate the widening. A1058 coast road eastbound off slip was widened from 2 lanes to 3 lanes with all footpaths realigned as part of the works. Approximately 90% of the work was carried out on night shifts between 8.00pm and 5.00am on a 6 night per week basis. We worked closely with the T.S.C.O to plan lane closures which changed nightly. We carried out all earthworks on nights which included disposal off site of 8000m3 material. The drainage works included Attenuation Tanks, petrol interceptors and the connection to existing NWL drains and manholes.
