Jackson Project Manager, James Baden received the EA SHEW Excellent Behaviours Award for the way he and the team adapted and implemented COVID19 mitigation measures on the Bromford & Castle Vale Flood Defence Scheme.
Along with the wider Jackson team, James worked efficiently to implement COVID-19 mitigation measures across the site in line with the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and Jackson guidelines.
These measures included: non-contact sign ins to site via phone, additional PPE branded with the 2 metre social distancing advice, wearable social distancing alarm tags, regular hand sanitation points and outdoor team meetings.
Amy Molyneux, Project Manager working on behalf of the Environment Agency said: “In what was a very reactive time with ever changing guidance, James was able to ensure that measures were strictly adhered to whilst keeping morale up within his team. During this time and continuing throughout these circumstances, there has been outstanding communication from Jackson, this communication is greatly appreciated by the wider project team who are mostly working from home to ensure the safety of the onsite staff.”
“This is a great example of the importance of adaptive behaviours and embracing new ways of working, not only to ensure the safety of onsite staff as quickly as possible but also ensuring the wider project team were regularly updated on the progress and status of the measures that were implemented. James has appreciated the need to be adaptive in the current climate and has embraced and suggested innovative ways of ensuring the project is ran collaboratively.”
