STAFF at the world's second largest titanium dioxide producer, Cristal Stallingborough, have celebrated a year of having no incidents on site.
As part of the celebration, Cristal and contractor Hertel donated £500 to Andy’s at St Andrew's Hospice.
Cristal site manager Andy Hindson said: "It is a great pleasure to be able to donate to this charity.
“Cristal's £250 donation came out of their budget and was matched by the contractor Hertel.
“The guys who work here on the shop floor then sat down and discussed which charity they'd like the money to go too and they chose Andy’s."
Regional business development manager for Hertel, Ian Birtles, added: “It’s a fantastic achievement for all.
“It's great to see people looking after themselves, colleagues and others who don't work on site and it's great we are able to give back into the community as well."
Andy’s representative Theresa Crowe thanked those involved and also explained how their donation would be spent, underlining the different services that the hospice provides.
She said: “We are the only children's hospice in Lincolnshire and the East Riding.
“We have over 200 children registered with us and it is for those with life limiting illnesses
“Support is also provided for parents and siblings.
“It is a great achievement for Cristal and Hertel.”
The workers gathered for a group photo and were praised for their efforts over the last year.
Mr Hindson added: "You've made it through the last 12 months without so much as a single first aider being called which is unheard of.
“You're the ones who make the decisions so well done in keeping yourselves and colleagues safe."
