Fazakerley man nets safety award for his work at Aintree Hospital

FAZAKERLEY'S Andrew Wade, who has worked on the Aintree University Hospital site for 5 years as the construction team helped to develop the new urgent care and trauma facilities at the Hospital, has been awarded first prize in his company's national health and safety awards. 

The award, for individual contribution to zero harm was presented in the Midlands by Andrew's company, BAM Construct UK, which employs around 3000 people across the UK working on over 100 projects.

A skilled operative who lives in Fazakerley, Liverpool, Andrew said:- "After spending four years in the Armed Forces and six years as a telescopic handler operator, I wanted to prove myself a valuable part of the construction team."

His initiatives developed BAM's existing practices, including more frequent breakdowns of performance on site and early weather warnings. With his colleagues, Andrew even escorted a family of ducklings to safety across the site.

Rob Bailey, BAM's construction manager for the scheme, said:- "I'm delighted for Andrew. Not only has he thoroughly earned the recognition, but of all the clients to whom you might wish to show a successful health and safety culture, a Hospital must rank top."

It came on the same night that the Urgent Care and Trauma Centre, built by BAM and designed by IBI, won:- 'project of the year' at the Health Estate and Facilities Management Association (Hefma) Awards. The award was received by Aintree University Hospital's Director of Estates and Facilities, Paul Fitzpatrick.

Hefma judges said:- "As well as the Trauma and Emergency Department, the new Centre also houses a Critical Care and Cardiology Department, theatres, a CT scanner and a Fracture Clinic, all co-located with a dedicated helipad.  The aim was to bring all of the key services associated with dealing with major trauma together in one area. The space did not exist on site to start from scratch with a new build, so the existing facility had to be refurbished and reconfigured to create additional service capaCity whilst keeping existing patient services operating smoothly." 

Ian Fleming, Managing Director for BAM in the North West added:- "Liverpool is a place we've enjoyed building in recently. Our work for Unilever is just across the Mersey, we worked on the Walker Art Gallery, and for the University's new Materials Innovation Factory.  We've got a lot of happy clients here across all sectors."
