Galliford Try Value: £1.6m Start date: Jan 2018 Contract length: 14 months


"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."
