Another Safety Leadership Award from Sir Robert McAlpine

Within a month of John Buchan being given SRM’s Regional Safety Leadership Award, our Demolition Supervisor Alan Rutherford was also awarded the Regional Safety Leadership Award by Sir Robert McAlpine. At the same time as John was commended for his work at Nissan on the press pit scheme, Alan was working within the Unipress facility at a different part of the site. The contract was to demolish an existing steel framed plantroom building. This in itself would be fairly straightforward but the work had to be undertaken during the construction of a new steel framed building immediately above the plantroom which limited our access. The job also included the excavation of a small hot press pit, again within the area of the new building. Well done Alan
