In January of this year the site team working on the Air BP rail tanker loading facility project in Kent established an initiative to raise money for a local special needs school while also encouraging safer working on site.
A scheme was devised where donations would be made by Murphy, Air BP and RMM Site Services to Abbey Court School based on timely close out of actions from health, safety and environmental meetings and the number of CDP cards completed, safety observation conversations and management safety tours carried out.
Murphy Project Manager Andy Chappell said “All staff really bought into this fantastic initiative and ensured that the safety culture remained positive during the project. Getting everybody home safe every day is our priority but it was also nice to know that by doing this we could give something back to the local community”.
Recently staff from Murphy were able to pass a cheque to Linda Taylor, head of Abbey School, for £3000 which will be spent on refurbishing the sensory courtyard and creating a ‘rural activity’ centre.
