Primat attended the Inaugural UK Rail Industry Awards in London on the 20th February 2014. Primat were a proud sponsor of the “workforce safety award” and were pleased to name ‘Mitie Total Security Management’ as the deserving winner of this award.

Over 600 guests gathered on the night to honour the achievements of the 22 winners chosen by a panel of pan-industry judges.

Primat attended the event as sponsor of the ‘workforce safety award’ and would like to offer massive congratulations to ‘Mitie Total Security Management’ for winning. Their consistent and rigorous approach to safety within the workplace was clear. They have ensured each of their employees has the right to work consistently in a safe environment and they completely deserve to see their efforts applauded.

The event itself was well organised and feedback from the Primat team in attendance was really positive. Richard Parry Jones’s keynote speech set the tone for what was to be a great evening full of networking opportunities, great food and celebration. Most importantly, over £90,000 was raised by the hundreds of Rail professionals who attended – a fantastic sum which will be used to support the next generation of the rail workforce.

Elliott McCabe, Rail Division Manager at Primat said “The evening was a real success. It was clear that each winner was a worthy one. Their efforts toward improving the rail industry are really inspiring.”
