Others benefit from training facility – confined space facility one of the best
It’s not just City Care staff enjoying the benefits the training facility offers. Other contractors, including City Care’s sub-contractors and SCIRT’s other delivery teams, have also used the training facility. Around 600 trainees have used the training facility so far this year, which is an indicator of how successful it is.

What is the Bill Perry Safety Award?
Bill Perry, former CEO of Fulton Hogan, was instrumental in establishing a zero harm culture within SCIRT. Bill passed away suddenly in 2011 and part of his legacy is an organisational commitment to safety. A quarterly safety award has been developed as one way of ensuring that safety is central to our work.
The Bill Perry Safety Award is based on safety indicators that Bill originally helped to set up for SCIRT. These include ‘safety conversations’, near miss reporting, hazard reporting, safe acts audits and safety initiatives. The award also recognises teams for outstanding safety initiatives which have the potential to impact across SCIRT or wider industry.
