Our very own Claire Oakes has been awarded the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the NWCSG Awards 2017. Create sponsored two tables are the North West Construction Safety Group awards on Friday, the 21st of April, and were thrilled to support Claire on the night, then to celebrate her fantastic win.
The lifetime achievement award recognises and promotes an inspirational individual who has made a significant contribution to Health and Safety over a sustained period of time.
A massive congratulations from all the team!
A small snippet of the speech from the night, taken from the nomination submission:
“Claire is more than a safety professional, she is a role model for women within the construction industry and females within business alike. In a male dominated industry, there is still very few female professionals let alone Female Directors and it is commendable what Claire has achieved.
Claire’s exacting standards have influenced the way both companies and their employees view SHE within construction. It is through Claire’s personable approach to people, her down to earth nature and warmth that makes you want to raise your own standards and consider health and safety within all your actions.
Claire is genuinely good fun to be around and on a personal level does not take herself too seriously and would treat, CEOs Managing Directors, Labourer and trainees alike – with a respectful and friendly manner.”
