Paul Elling, Waste Solutions’ health and safety manager said: “We were up against some really tough competition, so winning the overall prize is brilliant.”

Mike Webster, Group director – Waste Solutions said: “This Health and Safety initiative was just the start of a concerted focus on making Hills’ sites as safe as possible. Winning this award is great testament to the effort of everyone involved but it doesn’t mean our work is done. The ultimate prize will be to make our working environments as safe as we possibly can.”
