Carrier Transicold UK’s network service partners in the UK and Ireland have averaged scores of 91 per cent in the 2015 “Carrier Safe” awards, with two firms receiving a cash bonus to invest in further training.
The two winners were Hull-based Carrier Transicold East & North Yorkshire and Ipswich-based Carrier Transicold Eastern, who achieved the highest scores in the 150-point independent health and safety development programme.
“Carrier Safe” is an Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) development programme created by Carrier Transicold in 2011 in conjunction with the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF), an organisation that supports the manufacturing and engineering industries with professional training and advice services.
“Our focus on EH&S is a cornerstone of our business, both as a manufacturer and as an employer,” said Scott Dargan, Managing Director, Carrier Transicold, Northern Europe and Service EMEAR.
“We developed Carrier Safe to continually challenge our service partners and ensure they meet the highest safety standards, targeting a zero accident rate.
“Since we launched Carrier Safe in 2011, the average score across the network has risen year-to-year by more than six per cent. This means our customers can be assured they are supported by refrigeration professionals who have been extensively trained and adhere to a strict code of practice.”
