A young apprentice working in Methil has been recognised for his commitment to safety by a world renowned oil and gas exploration company.

Fourth year apprentice welder Jordan Lyle, who works at the BiFab Methil Yard was presented with the award by GDF SUEZ E&P UK, alongwith BiFab, for demonstrating exemplary safety behaviour.

His meticulous completion of pre-job risk assessments, as part of the Take 5 initiative - which aims to increase proactive workforce safety behaviours, thereby reducing risks - was praised in a recent ceremony.

Twenty-year-old Jordan has worked at the Methil Yard since the age of 16 and is currently working on the construction of the Cygnus project jackets for all four platforms of the GDF SUEZ E&P UK operated Cygnus field, plus the build of the Quarters & Utilities (QU) platform.

Presenting the award, Jean-Claude Perdigues, managing director of GDF SUEZ E&P UK, said, “It is an honour to be able to present this award to Jordan who has clearly demonstrated, at such a young age, his commitment to the safety of himself and his colleagues.”
