Douglas McLuckie, Director of Risk Management adds: "Over the past year, we have run a series of campaigns which continue to ingrain a robust Health and Safety culture across the company, such as our 'Work Safe, Home Safe' initiative and Jane has been one of the key members of the team to get the message across.

"We’re well known throughout the hire and wider construction industry for our exceptional Health, Safety and Compliance practices, underlined by our multiple RoSPA awards. Jane, along with her colleagues, is instrumental in ensuring we retain these high standards.”
