Thrive Safety Leadership Centre shortlisted for two major awards


Active Training Team (ATT) are delighted to announce that the Thrive Safety Leadership Centre, based in Immingham and developed in partnership with renewable energy leaders Ørsted, has been shortlisted in the 2021 Energy Institute Awards in the Health and Safety category and in the EVCOM London Live and Film Awards for Best Training Event.  

Dermot Kerrigan, Co-Director of ATT said: "Thanks to Ørsted’s vision and investment, ATT has been able to design a ground-breaking safety leadership centre of excellence on the Humber. The centre is available for use by all companies in the renewables, maritime, and related sectors. We are so pleased to see Thrive gaining recognition from such prestigious award schemes.”

Thrive features a hard-hitting, multi-media scenario which examines the build-up to a fatal incident on a load-out operation and its consequences. Having committed £1.4 million funding to create the purpose-built facility in partnership with ATT, Ørsted are inducting all personnel working on the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm project through Thrive. Thrive is a legacy for Hornsea Two and an example of innovation in the Humber’s rapidly developing renewables sector.

Duncan Clark, Head of UK Region, Ørsted, explains: “We’re really proud of the partnership that has created Thrive. ATT’s local team and colleagues have continued to work through the pandemic, and I’m hugely grateful that with their professionalism and focus we have stayed safe and with no compromise on the training. Safety is at the core of everything we do, and the bit that’s different is the engagement of emotion - it immerses people into the experience, helping creating a safer culture. Thrive connects people with the serious impacts of getting things wrong in a way that is very difficult to do with traditional desktop training.”

Returning for their 22nd year, the Energy Institute Awards celebrate and showcase accomplishments in the energy sector.
