Bachy Soletanche is proud to announce that it has been selected as this year’s winner of the Victor Award, recognising the company’s advancements in health and safety performance throughout 2022.
The awards were set up by Soletanche Bachy in 2001 to reward its subsidiaries that have implemented the most impactful health and safety initiatives each year. Each business is assessed in areas such as health and safety performance, initiatives, training, and occupational health management.
The achievement marks the third time Bachy Soletanche has been crowned the winner of the Victor Award, with previous successes coming in 2004 and 2006.
Soletanche Freyssinet QHSE Director, Lorenzo Alessi recently visited the team in London to present the trophy. Commenting on the achievement he said:
“The ability to learn, from both failures and everyday performance, has strongly contributed to Bachy Soletanche’s success in the Victor Awards. The judges were impressed with the practicality and effectiveness of Bachy Soletanche’s health and safety innovations, especially the auger stem cleaner and ‘iGuard’ device. These are examples of innovations and practices that could be successfully deployed in the wider Soletanche Bachy Group.”
In March, Bachy Soletanche was invited to Poland to present its submission to the Soletanche Bachy Club Action Safety (CAS) group. As the nominated UK entry, Bachy Soletanche was one of 60 Soletanche Bachy businesses competing for the acclaimed prize. The award submission detailed a wide array of health and safety advancements it made last year – some of the most notable ones being the iGuard system, the Rig Operators Training Scheme and the Auger Stem Cleaner.
