MGF are delighted to be announced as a finalist in the prestigious Ground Engineering Awards 2014 for our Safe Systems of Work Training Tools and their contribution to occupational health and safety for the UK construction industry.
Attracting the biggest names in the industry, and international interest, the 2014 Ground Engineering Awards are an unequalled celebration of geotechnical, geoenvironmental achievements and engineering excellence.
Shortlisted in the health and safety category, our in house created suite of safety training tools ‘Safe Systems of Work’ have been leading the shoring market for installation guidance since their launch in 2013.
Engineering Director, Steve Hesketh commented “MGF’s sole focus is the provision of safer working environments for Contractors undertaking excavation works. A key challenge recognised by MGF is the need to provide installation guidance which is simple to understand and readily accessible to Site Teams. To overcome this problem and to be able to deliver training on site, MGF developed the animated 3D video guides”
The video guides are the first of their kind in excavation safety management and have proved to be a popular training tool for our clients – as demonstrated by their Best Innovative Award win in 2013 from longstanding client Welsh Water.
The category award winners will be announced at the awards event held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Central London on 14th May 2014.
