Awards

Over the past 4 years Hire Station have been heavily involved in the prestigious HAE Awards of Excellence, the pinnacle of the tool, equipment and event hire industry. The awards are to acknowledge the success of both hirers and suppliers along with successful standard setting individuals. Without a doubt these are the most sought after accolades within the industry.

The awards are organised by HAE EHA (Hire Association Europe and Event Hire Association) and hosted by various TV personalities such as Debra Stephenson (Bad Girls & Coronation Street), Shaun Williamson (Eastenders & Inspector Morse) and Nick Knowles (DIY SOS & The National Lottery/Who Dares Wins). 

Please browse through the dated tabs below to find out more about the awards we have had the pleasure of being nominated for as well as the ones we succeeded in winning.

Hire Awards of Excellence 2016This year, Hire Station won the most intensely contested award. Winning SafeHire Company of the Year 2016 not only rewards the winner for consistently demonstrating exceptional safety standards, but also acts as a HAE Seal of Approval of our safety initiatives and procedures.

The judge’s panel said that Hire Station won because “The winner has affirmed its commitment to safety and produced a superb entry this year. Their enthusiasm and commitment to SafeHire throughout their company was magnificent
and goes from strength to strength.“

The SafeHire standard requires Hire Companies to demonstrate competence in safety, health, environment and quality. Accreditation must meet client demands for high standards of service, and also demonstrate a well trained workforce to support customers.

The continued focus on promoting and developing a safe place to work has ensured Health & Safety is now genuinely embedded into our culture, supported on a day-to-day basis through the Safety Guardians initiative.

We have been able to maintain momentum around Safety Guardians through quarterly regional meetings; training sessions; and the appointment of three Branch Managers as Regional Guardian Advisers. As Branch Managers, they bring practical operational knowledge and experience to the role. This year, we have created and issued a branch folder to all Safety Guardians.

The folder contains the forms and checklists required to undertake day-to-day Safety Guardians duties, along with a series of monthly toolbox talks that Safety Guardians deliver to their teams.
