Health and Safety awards 2020 and 2021
Gas Networks Ireland won the “Health and Safety Initiative of the Year” award for its HazCon app at the Networks Awards 2020, in recognition of exceptional commitment to all-round health and safety.
Gas Networks Ireland was also named as the winner in the ‘Utilities’ category at the Health & Safety Excellence Awards 2021. It came on the back of the gas utility achieving the major health and safety milestone of one million hours worked - the equivalent of 14 months - without a lost-time staff incident for the second time in two years.
'As guardians of Ireland’s gas infrastructure, safety is at the heart of everything we do. Our HazCon app is easy to use and has helped us to foster an even stronger health and safety culture within the organisation. Because of how well it has been adopted by our teams, numerous hazards have been removed - preventing accidents from occurring. The fact we didn’t have a loss time incident in over a million working hours shows the effectiveness that fixing smaller issues, before they become a bigger problem has.'
