Jim Martindale – Managing Director – Severfield

Dear Neil,

The health, safety and well-being of our people is something I’m very passionate about. I’m very clear that as a business we’ll always have to work hard to achieve safety excellence. Hence my quest has shifted heavily towards the ‘Zero Harm Safety Culture’ through positive safety leadership and pro-active management.

As a business we have achieved a new milestone, it is now over 2 years since our last reportable injury on one of our construction sites. This is not by chance, we are very aware of both the quality of our supply chain and the high level of commitment we receive – especially to our safety expectations/standards.

Please can I ask you to make your people aware of this fantastic achievement and thank them on my behalf for working safely. This achievement strengthens the working relationship between our two businesses and is the best place to be at a time when the market is tough, and the ability to outperform the competition is as important as ever.

We are fast approaching a very busy period, site programmes are very aggressive and site delivery dates will be tight – the safety of our people is our number one priority.

Thank you for your continued support”.
