Turner Access Award Winner!

21 October 2010

Turner Access is celebrating its latest award after being announced as the Winner of 'Best Achievement in Construction 2010 Award' at the 'Safety and Health Practitioner(SHP) IOSH Awards'.

The award was presented to Phil Mortlock (Group HSE Manager) and Fiona Gallagher (Turner Access Marketing Manager) at London's Park Lane Hilton hotel during the fourth annual SHP IOSH Awards on Wednesday 20th October 2010.

Turner Access won the honour on the back of their campaign to remove risks while 'working at height'.

Turner Access devised the BetaGuardĀ®, an integral advance guardrail for use on aluminium tower scaffolds to provide complete fall prevention during the assembly, dismantle and alteration processes. Turner Access believes the innovative equipment removes the five risks associated with the widely accepted 3T (through the trap) method: the risks of a fall, injury while fitting guardrails, tripping when entering/exiting a traditionally-braced tower, positional injury when entering/exiting a traditionally-braced tower, and impact injury when entering/exiting a traditionally braced tower.

Various major contractors and their clients have already specified the use of BetaGuard on their sites in order to meet the challenge of reducing risks on construction sites.

According to the judges, this innovative but simple device addresses a real risk that is prevalent across the industry and is a particularly practical solution to reducing risks while working at height.

SHP is the most widely read Health & Safety Journal and represents IOSH. Gary Gallagher (Turner Access Managing Director) commented that it was the most prestigious award Turner Access has won to date.
