Congratulations to RSK geoenvironmental consultant Alex Cox, who has won the Quarterly HSSE Award on RSK’s Shell contract.
Alex’s nominator commented: “Alex had arrived on-site and was ready to complete permit to work documentation on a retail site with the Shell shop attendant. Upon engaging with the attendant, Alex noticed that the attendant was busy with a queue of customers and shop tasks to complete. Realising that the attendant would not have been able to have a focused discussion on the permit to work documentation, he waited a few moments until the tasks were completed before approaching the attendant so that they had time to properly discuss the work scope and associated safety information.”
Alex realised that the safety process could be completed better by holding the conversation at a time when both parties were able to concentrate on the task. By delaying the work, Alex was able to reduce risk and delays to the public, an intervention that has been praised by Shell.
