A WATES site team has raised £5,000 to buy a puppy for Guide Dogs for the Blind by keeping a job in Oxfordshire accident free.
The contractor linked up with client Infineum, which donated cash every month there were no accidents on the research centre site in Abingdon.
The site enjoyed a 100 per cent safety record for the first six months, which raised the money to buy and train the puppy, whom the workers have named Millie.
The site has the most rigorous health and safety regime in Wates.Measures in place include a mandatory eye protection policy for all operatives, high standards of welfare and site accommodation, careful sit e traffic management systems, as well as a full-time safety manager working on the project.
