The WJ Group is celebrating being shortlisted for two awards on the back of one submission for its proactive approach to raising safety standards in its industry.
The company's strategy is called Transforming Roadmarking Sector Safety Standards and has been shortlisted in the championing safety category within the Highways England Awards.
It was also considered high quality enough for the judges to shortlist it for the Chairman’s Award: Excellence in Safety category.
The safety awards nominees are required to show improvements in health and safety through collaboration, communication and commitment to create significant change.
Craig Williams, WJ Group health & safety director, commented: 'Our sector needed a step change and we decided some time ago that for us good enough was just not good enough.
'It is a continuing journey of behavioural change, but we can already see that the improvements do benefit the sector, the wider industry and the road user.'
The Chairman’s special award recognises the company, project, team or individual that has shown substantial improvement in health and safety.
