AFM were delighted to receive the 'best of the best' award at the 2018 Guernsey Occupational Safety and Health Association (GOSHA) Award Ceremony.
AFM also collected a further two awards for the categories of; Individual or Young Safety Champion & Safety Training Initiative Award.
AFM’s HR administrator, Katie Taylor took home the ‘Individual or Young Achiever’ Award which recognised Katie’s championing of mental health and wellbeing at AFM. Katie was instrumental to the development of AFM’s wellbeing policy and support initiatives. She volunteers as the mental health first aider, coordinates training and increases the awareness of mental health among AFM staff.
Mark Edgar, AFM’s managing director, said: ‘Nothing for Katie is ever too much trouble. She’s shown consistently that she can act on her own initiative and is frequently identifying areas of potential improvement and benefit to the business across the fields of HR and health and safety.’
AFM also won the ‘Safety Training Initiative’ Award for developing a bespoke approach to electrical safety and electrical safety training. This involved a thorough review and comparison of AFM’s internal health and safety policies and procedures for electrical works against that of international companies and industry leaders. The approach has been applied to AFM’s business model across the Channel Islands.
‘The health, safety and well-being of our employees and all stakeholders is of utmost importance to AFM and we continually strive to achieve the highest standards of health and safety in our industry. To win both the award categories that we entered, and the Best of the Best Award, makes me incredibly proud of the whole team at AFM. We take health and safety extremely seriously so it’s fantastic to have this recognised,’ said Mark Edgar, AFM’s managing director.
