Monthly Hazard Observation Card Award: Munlochy Animal Aid and MFR Cash for Kids Receive a Combined Windfall of £1,000

In partnership with Seaway7 and Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, we’re delighted to announce that the winner of this month's Hazard Observation Card Award is Dougie Mauchline, Labourer for Global Energy Group Fabrication, who has chosen to divide the £1,000 prize between Munlochy Animal Aid and MFR Cash for Kids.

Founded by Iona Nicoll and based in North Kessock, Inverness, Munlochy Animal Aid provides rescue and treatment services, accommodation and re-homing for every type and breed of animal and bird.

MFR Cash for Kids gives children in the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire a brighter future. The grant giving charity is a lifeline to families, with their Emergency Fund offering support with essentials such as warm winter clothing, footwear, bedding, toiletries, school uniform and even food.

Lyndsay Rose, Charity Manager for Cash for Kids, said: “Thank you so much to Global Energy and especially Dougie who nominated us. This donation is going to make such a difference to so many children this winter. Many of the families we are supporting have nowhere else to turn, we are the last resort so on behalf of them all thank you for your support.”

Monthly Hazard Observation Card Award - Uncompromising Approach to Safety

The monthly Hazard Observation Card Award was developed by Seaway7 (client of Global Energy Group) and the Seagreen project team which is a joint venture between TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables. Seaway7, 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 a potential hazard or improvement is identified at our Port of Nigg facility, employees and contractors 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, Seaway7 and Seagreen each contribute a third of the monthly donation.

The 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 the Port of 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.
