Monthly Hazard Observation Card Award - CCAST Highland (Tain Food Bank)

In partnership with Seaway 7 and Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, we’re delighted to announce that the winner of the second Monthly Hazard Observation Card Award is Les Simpson, QC Inspector for Seaway 7, who has chosen CCAST Highland (SC040956), as the recipient of his £1,000 prize.

Much of the work by CCAST Highland consists of assisting and supporting individuals to be aware of and apply to the correct welfare benefit. However, in partnership with Blythswood Care and the Trussell Trust, the charity is also the facilitator of Tain Food Bank, providing emergency food boxes to those in need within the local community, as well as hosting an open food bank on two afternoons a week where a ‘referred’ individual or family can come along and receive a supply of food.

Amanda Nutt, project manager at CCAST Highland, said: "On behalf of all the board, staff, volunteers and service users of CCAST Highland, please can we thank all those associated with Global Energy Group, especially Les Simpson, who nominated us for this generous donation of £1,000 towards the work of the Highland Food Bank based in Tain. CCAST Highland is a small independent charity and has to source all of its funding, so this donation is of great encouragement and will enable us to continue to meet and support the needs of this community."

Uncompromising Approach to Safety

We're proud to be supporting Seaway 7 and Seagreen Wind Energy Limited with a hazard awareness programme that will improve Global Energy Group's already remarkable safety record, while also putting local charities in line for a £1,000 windfall.

The Monthly Hazard Observation Card Award was developed by Seaway 7 (client of Global Energy Group) and the Seagreen project team which is a joint venture between TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables. Seaway 7, the main contractor for the Seagreen renewable energy project, elected our Easter Ross port facility as the storage, marshalling, and logistics base for 114 turbine structures that will form Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm.

If employees identify any potential hazards or improvements on-site at our Port of Nigg facility, they can submit a Hazard Observation Card to their team leader. Each month, the best card is chosen and the person who submitted it is asked to nominate a charity to receive a £1,000 donation. Global Energy Group, Seaway 7 and Seagreen each contribute a third of the monthly donation.

The Monthly Observation Card Award scheme, which is set to run until the end of the Seagreen project, aims to promote a ‘safety first’ and ‘open culture’ among employees and contractors involved with the project at Nigg. As administrators of the Hazard Observation initiative, we value the safety of everyone who works for or with the Group. We continually strengthen our safety culture and believe that, given the right leadership and communication, all incidents are preventable.
