John Holland Safety AwardMay Safety Award for VAE’s Geoff Sims

John Holland’s Safety Award for the month of May was presented to VAE Group’s Geoff Sims on the Lismore Base Hospital Redevelopment (LBHR) project.

Geoff was assisting in unloading a cage of ductwork on Level 7 of LBH. He noticed a hazard in the form of some steel rods sticking out of the concrete on the pathway between the cage and the plantroom. Geoff picked up a grinder and cut the steel rods off, resolving any potential safety risk.

Geoff has received recognition through the John Holland Safety Award for his proactive approach to the possible incident, by “showing exceptional safety leadership in his role on the LBHR project through identification and rectification of site safety risks”.

Well done Geoff and the Lismore Hospital Team
