SSE Enterprise has become the first ever company to win ExxonMobil’s Golden Tiger Award in two consecutive years. The annual Golden Tiger Awards at Esso Fawley were introduced by ExxonMobil to recognise excellence from contractor companies at the site.
Since 1989, SSE Enterprise’s Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) team has worked at the site, providing planned maintenance, project work and emergency responses to the oil refinery’s electrical systems.
The annual Golden Tiger Awards are part of a long established programme at the refinery and were introduced by ExxonMobil to recognise excellence from contractor companies at the site. Following an extensive audit process, in which over 50 contractors at the refinery were monitored on various working practices, SSE Enterprise and Rhyal Engineering were the only companies selected for the prestigious Golden Tiger 2016.
This is second consecutive year that our E&I team at the Esso Fawley plant in Southampton have been recognised for their safety excellence, but this year the team went one better.
Site Manager, Christopher May said:
“Working for ExxonMobil, there is no greater accolade than the Golden Tiger Award. To receive this award not once but twice in consecutive years is a remarkable achievement and one for which SSE Enterprise is very proud. It is a recognition of the hard work our E&I team puts in every day, and the collaborative working strategy we have adopted.”
Group and individual awards are presented to companies and staff showing outstanding performance. Greg is one of the onsite E&I supervisors to 40 operatives including electricians, pipefitters and apprentices. He is responsible for ensuring his staff are set to work safely and successfully deliver various projects at the refinery.
To put this fantastic achievement into context, Greg was awarded the individual Golden Tiger Award, and was one of just seven individuals selected from a pool of over 2,000 staff.
Speaking of his achievement, Greg said:
“Obviously I’m very proud to be recognised in this way. As a team I think we work extremely well, and everyone, regardless of their role at the site, takes our zero injury policy very seriously.”
