Design Best Practice Award

Tue 12th Apr 2016

The spotlight was well and truly shining on Harry Peers Steelwork and in particular, on Design Manager Chris Achilles at the recent AstraZeneca Engineering SHE Awards.

Chris attended the AstraZeneca Awards on 10th March 2016 with Bernice Peers, SHE Advisor and was a little bemused initially as to why he was not invited to showcase his usual presentation skills for the waiting public, but all was to be revealed!

Chris was in fact the recipient of an award himself and all eyes were on him as he collected a Design Best Practice award on behalf of Harry Peers for:

"Consistently leading by example and demonstrating enthusiasm and commitment to the Design Best Practice Group throughout 2015".

Brian Street from AstraZeneca presented a surprised but typically modest Chris with the accolade and said that the award was long overdue, a statement shared by many.

Harry Peers Steelwork are a founder member of the Design Best Practice website which aims to promote safety in design and Chris has been an active member of the Group for over 10 years, a role he takes very seriously and has now been recognised for.

Chris is an advisor and an advocate of health & safety within design, and his continual enthusiasm and drive to seek new and innovative ways to promote safety and reduce the risk of accidents make him deserving of this award.

Congratulations go to Chris, enjoy the moment. Your public will have to wait until you will reprise your presentation role next year!
