    Making Scotland safer earns award

    Making Scotland safer earns award

    Health and safety campaigner Norman Stevenson has been rewarded for making Scotland’s offices, building sites and factories safer places.

    Mr Stevenson has been awarded the prestigious Maurice Adamson Award, which honours an individual’s outstanding contribution to the Safety Groups UK (SGUK) drive.

    Mr Stevenson has held various leading posts for over a quarter of a century in the industry, including Strathclyde Health and Safety Group’s former chairman, Safety Group West of Scotland’s life president, Scottish Chamber of Safety chairman and Safety Groups UK management committee member.

    Mr Stevenson has also worked in tandem with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) officials over the years.

    He has also played a prominent part in reviving the Edinburgh and Lothians HSE group and others which had previously failed and helped foster the west Scotland’s Safety Groups’ growth.

    Safety experts say there have been fewer accidents at work in Scotland because of Mr Stevenson’s endeavours. In fact, they went as far as to say that several workers are only alive and healthy now due to his efforts to make Scottish workplaces safer.

    Mr Stevenson calls the award ‘most gratifying’, especially as it is presented by his peers. He says the award is only for work which forms part of his duties anyway.

    There are many others like him who are behind the safety and health message, Mr Stevenson says. He thanked all those people with whom he has worked during his time in the industry.

    The honour was handed out during the Safety Groups UK Awards. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) safety charity stages the annual awards event.
