Zero health and safety accident rates

2016 was a very positive year for the Briggs and Forrester Group’s health and safety record. We continued our excellent performance in an industry where working to keep everyone safe is of paramount importance. Even with increases over the last few years in project turnover, number of man hours worked and number of workers, we have still seen a year on year reduction in accidents and lost time injuries.

Fundraising 16th September

We had a wonderful day on 16th September across our offices fundraising in support of one our colleagues, who at 44 has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Showing our support for him, his wife and three children was the driving force behind the fantastic response that we had from both inside and outside the company.

Some of the fundraising included car washing, throwing sponges at the stocks, baking, raffles and even singing and dancing!

The generosity of everyone has been so inspiring and we want to thank all who pledged and supported us.
