Olympics construction supporting safety measures like protective bootsPosted on 08/07/2009
The teams behind the continued development of the London 2012 Olympic Park are following high standards of health and safety, according to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), with a number of workers receiving awards for their commitment.
Judged by an independent adjudication panel involving the British Safety Council, the ODA awards have recognised people for their adherence to health and safety practices that may involve equipment such as protective boots.
John Armitt, chairman of the ODA, commented that health and safety are essential in a project of the Olympic Park's complexity.
He added: 'The Olympic Park is one of the busiest construction sites in the UK and will continue to grow as the workforce increases to its peak in 2010.
'It is essential that we continue our efforts to make the Olympic Park the healthiest, safest and greenest site in the country.'
Five teams and four individuals working on London 2012 projects were awarded for their commitments to strong safety and environmental practices.
The ODA recently revealed that construction for its white water canoe centre is underway.
