PM PROjEN Sponsors Weston Point Rangers JFC

PM PROjEN were approached by Weston Point Rangers Junior Football Club at the start of the 2018 /2019 Football season, with a request to sponsor their under 12’s football team.

This Community Football Club has over 100 players competing in the Warrington and St Helens leagues. The club provides children aged between 6 – 17 years with the opportunity to enjoy football thanks to the dedication of the clubs volunteer coaches and committee members. Whilst the club is mainly supported by parent funding and other fundraising activities, equipment and football kits represent a significant expense. Given this, PM PROjEN elected to support the club by purchasing football kits for the under 12’s football team.
With the current season coming to a close, head coach Scott Jenkins recently provided PM PROjEN with an update on Weston Point Rangers JFC’s performance;
“I am just emailing to say another massive thank you from both myself, and the team, for helping us out with the sponsorship and our new kits for last season. The team loved playing in them! We had a brilliant start to the season, and were unbeaten in our first 11 games. We also finished 5th in the League cup, and we got to the semi-final of the Alt Holt cup, getting beaten 2-1 by a last minute goal by a team who play three divisions above us. We also entered the Woolston Tournament, and got through to the semi-finals.
We will continue to wear the kits as our home kit for the next coming season, and once the current team have grown out of them, we will be passing them down to the younger teams in our club.
Thank you again, it was really nice for the lads to have a brand new kit last year and for it to be of such good quality.”
Rebecca Shillito, (PM PROjEN’s Business Development Manager) commented – “PM PROjEN will continue to support local community projects. Often a relatively small contribution can make an important and tangible difference to those involved. In this case, we were able to make sure that the team looked the part. The team’s performance was of course all down to the dedication and hard work of the players, parents and volunteers. We are pleased to have been able to help and are proud of the teams 2018/2019 performance”.

PM PROjEN awarded RoSPA Order of Distinction for Health and Safety Practices

PM PROjEN are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a prestigious award in recognition of our practices and achievements in helping our staff, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.

PM PROjEN has now achieved its fourth Order of Distinction (18 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

PM PROjEN will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Thursday 6th June 2019.

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Lyndon Workman, PM PROjEN’s Health, Safety & Environmental Manager said;

“We are delighted to have been awarded our fourth Order of Distinction following 18 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards. As with previous years, these awards are in recognition of our excellent performance in relation to Health and Safety. It is particularly gratifying to receive this recognition given the ongoing challenges we face in our industry, particularly around instilling a positive Health and Safety culture at all levels of organisations. We work hard with our clients and our supply chain to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of those that we manage in construction.

In 2018, we promoted a number of Health, Safety and Wellbeing initiatives, particularly regarding Mental Health awareness, where PM PROjEN have become better equipped to understand and support the business in spotting the signs associated with mental health issues.

Third party recognition of our performance is a great boost to all personnel in the business and serves to further encourage our ongoing drive to make a tangible impact on the delivery of safer projects whilst working with our partners to promote health and wellbeing”.

The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

The Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.

Edinburgh Office Charity Pub Quiz

The PM PROjEN Edinburgh team recently held a charity Pub Quiz in support of their chosen charity, “Sporting Start”. There were 5 teams competing with a mix of staff, wider friends and colleagues, including a team from SGN (one of PM PROjEN’s key clients). Colin “Taskmaster” Rodger organised the event and set 5 rounds of questions, with team “Steve’s + 1” the eventual winners. “All the Beer, No Idea” lived up to their name and took home the booby prize.

The event raised £151 on the night for the charity, which combined with our other recent fundraising efforts means that the Edinburgh office has now raised a total of £204.50 for the Sporting Start charity.

We would like to thank Colin for organising such a great event.

Making Health & Safety a priority in every Industry

The HSE will be running a two month campaign to target Agricultural Sites following continued poor performances associated with the Industry. In 2017/18, thirty three people lost their lives, which is around 18 times higher than the all industry fatal injury rate.

PM PROjEN have helped a number of clients improve their SHE performance, particularly when assisting them with new projects by applying the norms used in the Construction Industry. PM PROjEN are also able to provide support with Risk Assessments, Training and help nurture the Health & Safety culture by completing workplace inspections and behavioural based safety training.

Lyndon Workman, HSE Manager for PM PROjEN commented, ‘Whilst the Agricultural Industry has made improvements, it still has some way to go to achieve the standards we see in the Construction sector. This is a journey that requires commitment from the top with better training and a step change in people’s behaviour, recognising the potential for harm in the workplace and the often simple controls that can be adopted to eliminate or reduce risk so far as is reasonably practicable’.
