Press Release – Travis Perkins wins at the Hire Awards of Excellence 2020

On Wednesday 16th September 2020, during an online event ‘Hire Awards of Excellence 2020’ organised by Hire Association Europe (HAE), Travis Perkins won two top awards. The Hire Awards of Excellence celebrate the amazing achievements of hire and supply companies across the UK’s plant, tool, equipment and event hire industry.

The first award was for the Best Use of New Media. TP Tool Hire created a fun and engaging social media campaign to make customers aware of their proposition and to showcase their kit available for hire.

The second award was the SafeHire Best Plant Tool and Equipment Hire Company of the year. This was attributed to Travis Perkins identifying that the root cause of the majority of their safety incidents were caused by operator error. Off the back of that, Travis Perkins created industry leading plant safety handover videos designed to protect customers from injuries and keep them safe when using Travis Perkins’ equipment. These videos are used in every handover of a dumper or micro or mini excavator – and as a result, incidents have reduced significantly.

It’s great to see that the TP Tool Hire team was recognised for leading by example in maintaining high standards and putting customers at the heart of everything they do.

Symec assisted with this program by deploying 600 handheld devices to Tool Hire drivers across the UK. To help TP Tool Hire implement the new safety standards, the devices were installed with the safety videos during the staging process.
