The safety of customers and staff is a number one priority, and the Safety Person or Team Award
recognises the people who strive to ensure that everyone gets home safe and well at the end of the day.
Southern Rail Enforcement Officers Bridget Nolan and Jeremy Rogers celebrated success at this year’s RailStaff Awards ceremony.
Bridget and Jeremy were nominated for their Multi Establishment, Safety, Security and Guidance Event. This idea was formed after a walk around London Bridge station. As Rail Enforcement Officers (REO) they understand the many different issues passengers face, and repeatedly deal with issues such as begging, homelessness, street drinking, vulnerable people, mental health, and county lines.
“We really appreciate this,” said Bridget. “We’ve put in a lot of hard work over the last six months creating this brand-new initiative. It hasn’t just been us, it’s been our team leaders, our managers, and lot of other people who have helped us. It’s all about giving a people a voice.”
Amulet Security was well placed to sponsor this year’s award. Amulet is a specialist intelligence-led security partner, providing a complete suite of security services for organisations looking for solutions more tailored to their needs. It combines industry-leading technology with its highly trained personnel to provide security that helps organisations operate smoothly with minimum disruption.
Tracey Cheung, head of HR at Amulet Security presented the award.
“We’re honoured to have been involved in the RailStaff Awards,” she said. “It’s so important to acknowledge the individuals who ensure the safety of travellers every single day. It’s great to have met so many amazing people tonight and recognise all the good they’ve been doing.”
