February 2022 OOPS Award Winner

Posted On: 22 Mar 2022

Putting Safety-first – we always ask our teams to keep an eye out for any potential issues.

Each month we recognise individuals who have highlighted these through our OOPS Scheme (Observation of Poor Safety).

Congratulations to our latest OOPS Winner Paul in our Streetcare team.

So, what did Paul do to receive this award? Paul found and immediately reported a bin on a public highway that had asbestos in it. Thanks to Paul’s tip off, SMBC arranged for asbestos contractors to urgently come and remove the bin.

The inhalation of asbestos can lead to serious problems – so preventing this cannot be underestimated.

Thanks for putting Safety-first and reporting what could have been a potential problem Paul.
