Nicol of Skene are WINNERS at the Trades Awards for the SECOND year running!

The team at Nicol of Skene are incredibly proud to be taking home the trophy again this year in the Excellence in Health and Safety Category after winning this same award last year at The Trades Awards 2020!

Winning this award two years in a row truly highlights the hard work everyone at Nicol of Skene has put in and acknowledges the company’s dedication to the protection, health, safety, and wellbeing of every worker. Health and Safety plays such a large role in Nicol of Skene’s operations as well as in each and every one of their employees working days, whether it be onsite or offsite.

After winning the award last year and whilst still having to deal with all the necessary restrictions needed to protect their workers in a global pandemic, Nicol of Skene have made many more changes and improvements to their Health and Safety processes and procedures in the past year. The company have been making continual changes to improve their occupational health performance and the wellbeing of their staff, with a recent focus on their employees who’s faces you don’t see on site, including the team who keep the company’s plant and vehicle fleet up and running in the workshop.

In late 2020, Nicol of Skene made the decision to continue the journey to develop their health and safety management system. Following a two-stage audit process, Nicol of Skene are now certified by BSI to the ISO 45001:2018 Standard for the provision of civil engineering, construction, horizontal directional drilling, and plant hire services. This further demonstrates Nicol of Skene’s commitment to the health, safety and welfare of their workers and the continual improvement of OH&S culture and performance, across all of the company’s operations.

One of the other main factors contributing to Nicol of Skene’s Health and Safety improvements throughout the past year is their continued focus on maintaining a modern plant and equipment fleet, incorporating the latest innovations and technology to help protect their workers and other stakeholders. This year Nicol of Skene introduced two new larger suction excavators to their fleet to upgrade and replace the existing “Anchorator”. The two new machines offer greater capabilities, allowing Nicol of Skene to respond to challenging ground conditions on projects of different scopes all whilst working even smarter & even safer than before!
