Workers at Kier Construction Scotland have racked up three million man hours without a serious accident.

The Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) milestone was announced as the builder received a gold award at the annual Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) occupational health and safety awards 2016 in Glasgow.

The RoSPA scheme is the largest and longest-running of its kind in the UK and Kier’s award is the sixth consecutive year that its Scottish business has been recognised for its commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
