Safety Performance Pays Off

Adsteam's Thames & Medway operation has recently awarded cheques of £500 to both the local branch of RNLI and Demelza House, the local children's hospice in Sittingbourne Kent, which provides care for life-limited children and their families.

The money was raised through an internal Safety Award Scheme recently introduced by the company that seeks to reward good safety performance. Under the terms of the scheme, any UK operation that achieves one year without a single lost time injury (LTI) is rewarded with a cheque of £500 to present to a charity of that team's choice.

To date, Adsteam Medway has successfully notched up not one, but two, incident-free years, receiving £1000 to donate to good causes nominated by the crews: the RNLI & Demelza House.

Commenting on the award, Port Manager David Brown said: "As these donations indicate, safety is a top priority for the Thames & Medway operation. We are all very pleased that our efforts have been recognised and rewarded. Both charities are very close to the hearts of many crew members, who have worked extremely hard to maintain this excellent safety record."

The coxswain of the Sheerness Lifeboat on behalf of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution thanked Adsteam Marine for their generous donation towards funding the Sheerness Lifeboat.

Lynn Collier the Mid Kent Community Fundraising Manager on behalf of Demelza House and the children and families thanked Adsteam Marine for their support, saying "This money will help to make their lives a little easier."

Adsteam UK is the country's leading supplier of towage services, with operations at seven key ports: Thames & Medway, Felixstowe, Hull, Immingham, Liverpool and Southampton. One of the longest-established ship-assist specialists, the company has been operating on the Thames & Medway for over a century.
