P66 recruits arrive on site as safe work aids charities
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 28 Feb 2017
PHILLIPS 66 and Grayton Engineering have teamed up to present £6,000, split between two charities, after completing 80 days safe working at Humber Refinery.
It served as an excellent example to the 14 trainee process operators who arrived at the South Killingholme base, having been selected from a staggering 11,000 applications.
It followed a recruitment campaign across the Grimsby Telegraph, Scunthorpe Telegraph and Hull Daily Mail publications.
To mark the successful contractor works, Phillips 66 selected Headway, the brain injury association. It was chosen after friend and colleague Geoff Triffitt was lost recently to a brain haemorrhage.
"We wanted the money to go towards helping a related brain charity and Geoff's wife suggested Headway. It is an honour to be able to donate this on her behalf and in his memory," general manager Darren Cunningham said of the tribute to the On Line Design and Engineering employee.

He passed away late last year. Mr Cunningham added: "Safety is at the core of everything we do and to be able to reach another milestone that means everyone is working safely, and we get the opportunity to make another donation to local charities who are making a real difference and positive impact in our communities is one of the highlights of my job."
Contractor Grayton Engineering chose Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe.
Site manager, Simon Hollingsworth, said: "We hope this money will help them to continue to deliver the outstanding work they do caring both for people in their last days and months and their families. We are all positively touched in some way by the work they do."
A further presentation of £250 was made to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, chosen by Phillips 66 Humber Refinery Contractor Safety Advisory Team, with the money raised after a campaign to stop people dropping ear plugs on site.
