SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit UK achieved Gold Accreditation at the 2016 Connected Business Awards. The annual event, held at the Derby Roundhouse, celebrates the efforts of businesses to promote sustainable travel.
The judging panel awarded the highest level of accreditation to SNC-Lavalin. This was in recognition of the work done to provide healthy and sustainable ways for employees to commute.
The company was Highly Commended in the ‘Large Employment Site of the Year’ category. The bike sheds and shower facilities have been enhanced at the Rail & Transit headquarters, to encourage staff to cycle to work. Bike MOTs were also offered to staff at multiple sites.
UK HSQE Manager, Ian Phillips, was Highly Commended in the ‘Travel Champion of the Year’ category. The judges were impressed by the initiatives Ian has led, since he was promoted to his current role in January 2014.
Michael Grace, Regional Director, Rail & Transit UK says: “As a business, we’re committed to making our offices a great place to work, as well as supporting local communities and the environment. Ian and the HSQE team’s efforts play a key part in this; we’re very proud of their achievements.”
