Top Health & Safety Award for Lowry Building & Civil Engineering

Lowry Building & Civil Engineering has been rewarded for its proactive approach and investment in health and safety procedures.

It was presented with the Health & Safety award, sponsored by construction plant and equipment supplier Pat O’Donnell & Co., during a glittering ceremony at the annual Construction, Quarry & Recycling Awards, compered by television and radio sports presenter Adrian Logan, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in South Belfast.
Organised by the publishers of Plant & Civil Engineer, 4SM (NI) Ltd, it was attended by hundreds of guests and leading figures from the plant, construction, quarry and waste management sectors. With 20 separate categories, the event is widely regarded as Ireland’s premier platform of recognition for those operating across all sectors of the industry.

The award judges said that this particular category attracted a diverse range of worthy entries from various perspectives.  “Companies demonstrated varying approaches to promotion of health and safety, innovative solutions including use of real time apps to record and promote a positive health and safety culture.”

And they added: “Lowry Building & Civil Engineering demonstrated positive enforcement of its core values in health and safety through engagement of the workforce, procurement of cutting edge technology and management commitment particularly in the promotion of health and behavioural safety  

“They used company branded products to underpin a health and safety message, demonstrated a proactive approach to men’s health, utilising national campaigns to raise awareness on topical issues.  Training in both traditional and mental health first aid were provided and a mental health first aider was encouraged to develop health programmes in conjunction with management.  Provision of health care and health surveillance has had an overall benefit to the total workforce.”

Lowry Building & Civil Engineering Ltd has a long-established history stretching back to 1961 when the company was originally founded in Castlederg, County Tyrone. Since then company has grown steadily to become one of the leading medium sized contractors in Northern Ireland, delivering complex, multi-discipline projects throughout the country. 

The company won the ‘Construction Project of the Year’ award at last year’s event.
