Hardstaff Barriers | Brave and kind-hearted colleagues receive top awards for their bravery and outstanding contribution to their communities
Five colleagues have received top highways awards and recognition at the Highways Heroes Award 2022 during a glittering ceremony in London on 7th December.
Jack Scott and Conor Morgan-Judd have received the award after their brave and quick-thinking actions helped to save the life of a man stabbed in the middle of the night in a central Manchester street.
They were nominated for the award following the terrifying incident in October 2021, while installing highway safety barriers in Manchester city centre.
Dawn Nadin, who received the Chairman’s Award had been nominated for her commitment to helping others – in and out of the workplace.
From volunteer running coach to recycling used PPE – and everything in between – Dawn always goes the extra mile and is an inspiration to her work colleagues.
Jim Cotter and Paul ‘Ash’ Ashmore both received the Personal Impact medal in recognition for their decisive action when they assisted an unconscious man who crashed his car on the motorway after suffering a heart attack.
The incident took place on the M6 in Cheshire in September 2021, while on their way to install a vehicle restraint system at the Climate Change Conference, in Glasgow (COP26).
Peter Wilkinson, Managing Director, Hill&Smith Infrastructure Ltd, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our colleagues and are honoured to have them as part of our organisation. These awards are well deserved! Congratulations!”
