It’s a 40th birthday to remember for a civil engineering firm rounding off its year of celebrations with a clutch of awards – including a national title.
Hartlepool-based Seymour Civil Engineering was awarded the Health, Safety and Wellbeing award at the National Constructing Excellence Awards at an esteemed event in London.
The award is hot on the heels of the North East Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Awards in Newcastle, where Seymour picked up the Health and Safety Company of the Year and Training Company of the Year 2018 for the third year running.
Managing director Kevin Byrne said was the perfect end to an outstanding 40th year.
“We have always had a strong focus on health and safety and training – and these awards show our continued commitment to these key workplace issues,” he added.
“The awards are also testament to our wonderful, dedicated staff whose work is helping to delivering high quality workmanship to projects of both regional and national significance.
“We’ve had a fantastic 40th year and are looking forward to what 2019 brings, with plenty more exciting projects to deliver.”
The judges paid credit to how Seymour has set up a series of health and wellbeing campaigns, covering subjects including the dangers of silica, healthy eating and mental health awareness as well as the development of a positive health, safety and wellbeing culture that had been created throughout the company.
