Siemens Mobility scoops trio of accolades at SHE Awards
The 2020 Safety & Health Excellence (SHE) Awards saw Siemens Mobility lauded for its focus on zero harm in the UK - with two individual awards, plus a highly commended accolade.
Siemens Mobility's Poole facility was highly commended in the 'Best Health and Safety for Manufacturing' category for the safety behaviours cultural change programme driven by a daily 'Gemba walk'. Gemba is Japanese for 'the real place' and the initiative, which follows the same route each day, highlights safety as the top priority at each workstation.
HSEQ Director Louise Ward was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her long-standing service to the safety industry.
Retired Siemens Mobility EHS Manager Richard Abbess received the inaugural Unsung Hero Award for his outstanding contribution to upholding and improving safety standards.
Siemens Mobility has shown clear dedication to safety standards both as a collective and with individual initiatives. The organisation's recognition at the awards is fitting given its continued day-to-day focus on keeping people and processes safe.Nicole Vazquez, Awards judge
