Award winning Cubis Safety and Marketing Teams

At the recent CRH Safety Awards and Lightside Conference Cubis won 2 significant awards. One for Safety Leadership in Australia and the other for Digital Marketing Excellence. Craig Quine from Cubis Australia (Operations Director) and Paul Kelly (Marketing Director) were both present to accept the awards on behalf of their teams.

Thirty-one colleagues from CRH businesses, plus three contractors, were honoured at the 2018 Europe Safety Awards ceremony which took place in Amsterdam. The event was attended by award winners and their partners from 18 countries. The awards celebrated their outstanding safety achievements over the past year. 

In total, Europe Lightside businesses took home six awards at the event, including a Safety Leadership award for Craig Quine, COO of Cubis Systems in Australia. 

Craig took responsibility for rolling out CRH’s Life Saving Rules at Cubis and “developing a strong safety culture across the multi-site business”. As a result, Craig and his team have delivered three years without lost time incidents across four of Cubis’ manufacturing sites. 

The winners received their awards from Mehmet Pekarun, MD Europe Lightside, who said: “Safety is of paramount importance to CRH. It’s vital that we recognise the outstanding contributions towards building a safe working environment that people across our business have made over the past year. I would like to congratulate all of the award winners across Europe Lightside for their great achievement and thank them for their efforts to make our platform a safer place to work”. 

Congratulating all the winners, Michael Keating, HSE Director Europe, said: “We work in a high-risk environment in our business. The leadership of people like you is vital in helping us to manage this significant risk. The example of your achievements can inspire those around you”.

The Digital Marketing Excellence award recognised the work that the Cubis team has done around it’s suite of digital marketing tools, and in particular the soon to be launched ‘Live Chat’ function on our new website. The ‘Live Chat’ function has been developed by Cubis to improve global customer engagement and can be scaled across various CRH group operating companies.

Michael Wightman, Cubis Managing Director, was delighted with the awards and said “Safety is our number one priority across all of our businesses. To be recognised for safety excellence in Australia is a great reflection on the work and collaboration that went on between our European team, led by Joe Brankin, and our Australian team, led by Craig, to implement this system. The customer experience is also hugely important to Cubis, and be recognised for marketing excellence around the digital tools that we use to engage with our customers is significant. We live in a digital age and customer expectations when communicating with suppliers is changing rapidly. It is great to see Cubis being recognised as being at the forefront of these initiatives.”
