Reward and Recognition

TfL LU Beacon Award

Emico is proud to have earned a TfL LU Beacon award for our Acton Town SER project on the 13th of June 2018.

It was the breaking record award as it was the quickest award ever received from a site.

The Beacon award acknowledges Emico’s and Morgan Sindall’s commitment to good practice in site management on the project. It follows a number of unannounced HSQE inspections, during which Emico and Morgan Sindall exceeded expectations every time. This SER project at Acton Town Depot involved the refurbishment of the signalling equipment room (SER) and Electrical Switch Room (ESR). It is part of the SER framework managed by LU’s Four Lines Modernisation (4LM) team to refurbish or new build at 52 locations across London.

 About the Beacon award

The Beacon award scheme recognises suppliers who demonstrate outstanding performance in health and safety. Transport for London only awards this award to contractors who consistently demonstrate a commitment to improving and maintaining high standards of health and safety. The Beacon scheme is based on the Considerate Constructors Scheme, but demands even higher standards and has additional requirements, because of the potentially hazardous rail environment. Tube Lines introduced the scheme in 2006 to help ensure that all work at its project sites and maintenance depots is undertaken safely and considerately.

The criteria for the Beacon site award fall into five categories: Consideration Environment Cleanliness Safety and health Management and Values.

Well done to the site team for this award.
