Quinn Building Products scooped another award at the IQ Excellence Awards in Belfast last week for their innovative Quinn Safety Hub. The award was in the Standards and Professionalism category, where the Hub was recognised as the Best Personal Development Project in the Northern Ireland Institute of Quarrying Awards.

The IQ Excellence Awards are about celebrating the success of exceptional individuals, teams and projects around the UK and recognise the positive impact professionals make across the country.

As a regional award winner, Quinn will now go forward to the national excellence awards to compete for the overall national title in 2020.

The Quinn Safety Hub, launched in 2018/19, is a state if the art health and safety and environmental management system, which is aimed at ensuring a zero harm environment. The Hub gives the organisation cloud based, centralised health and safety management across all divisions. With integrated training and contractor management solutions, the Hub provides a holistic approach to health and safety management, with the data mining capability to help continually drive process improvement across the company.

Since the introduction of the Safety Hub, Quinn have seen a marked improvement in health and safety statistics, and the company has received widespread recognition for the scheme which is a major part of their Safer by Competence policy.

Speaking of the most recent awards success, Quinn’s Health and Safety Manager, Gerry Clancy, said,

“The IQ Excellence Awards are recognised as a very prestigious celebration of excellence within the mineral products sector across the UK, with an esteemed judging panel, so we’re delighted to win the Best Personal Development Project Award.
