Raeburn Drilling & Geotechnical Ltd (RDG) is delighted to share its success in winning the BDA Safety Initiative and Improvement Award 2022 for its Mental Health Safety Initiative ‘Stop, Think, Understand, Support’ . The award was presented at the BDA Annual Awards ceremony held at The Hilton Hotel, Gateshead on 12th November 2022.
Achieving this Award is highly significant and demonstrates RDG’s commitment of its employees. The company Mental Health Awareness Programme – ‘Stop, Think, Understand, Support’ was initiated to provide in-house support to all staff, to raise awareness in recognising signs in symptoms and to ensure that the Stigma associated with menta health in the workplace is removed.
The initiative was a huge success and feedback from those who participated was fantastic. This award also raises awareness within the wider drilling industry and demonstrates RDG as an industry leader and continued innovation to support its people and the British Drilling Industry.
Paul McMann, BDA Chairman said “Given the growing awareness of mental health issues in the workplace, and the taboo that often exists around these issues, this initiative is most welcome and is already making an impact.”
