That’s more than 200 years’ worth of safe hours worked, in a time of massive construction and change on the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.

Sellafield Ltd Head of EHS&Q in Project Delivery, Mark Sarrington explained:

Once we knew we were hitting this milestone without a recordable accident we knew we wanted to mark it in some way.

Our colleague Tommy Dougan sadly passed away in the summer – he was very well regarded so we thought it would be a nice idea to speak to his family and ask them which deserving cause they would like to see benefit.

Tommy was a safety advisor on the Sellafield site and supported the recent delivery of the Silos Maintenance Facility project. His family chose Hospice at Home West Cumbria, which will receive £500.

Tommy’s son Marc, who works at the Vitrification facility as a Manufacturing Team Leader, said:

The hospice really helped a great deal when my dad was in the nursing home, the support they gave us was second to none. Thanks for this very kind gesture it really means a lot and it shows how well my dad was thought of.
