The Beacon Award is presented as recognition of outstanding civil engineering prowess on a project site and at the same time distinguishing the project for professional conduct, safety and the incorporation of a proactive safety culture. Our third Beacon Award at Kennington Station demonstrates our company belief that those who come to work should go home safely. We operate a continuous behavioural programme which is designed to support and improve our safety culture. This safety culture, along with our structured integrated management system has led to successive annual awards in recognition of our commitment to our health, safety and environmental performance. Our construction teams demonstrate flexibility and the ability to deliver consistently high standards of service and quality of works – all of which contributes to the longevity of our client relationships.
In 2013 Livis successfully achieved Beacon Status on two of its projects, the first was at Northfields Depot for the Tube Line train crew accommodation project with the award ceremony held on 7th February 2013. The Beacon award recognises that works were carried out professionally, safely and without incident embracing the ‘Be Safe’ ethos. Tube Lines introduced its Beacon site scheme to help ensure all work at its project sites and maintenance depots is undertaken safely and considerately. It is based around the Considerate Constructors Scheme but demands even higher standards and has additional requirements because of the potentially hazardous rail environment.
The second was at Buckhurst Hill Station for the London Underground Station Works and Improvement Programme (SWIP). The team have been working extremely hard together to achieve the first Beacon award for the SWIP department. This was successfully achieved early December 2013 and now is the benchmark standard.
