Mobile Mini a headline sponsor for Safety, Health and Environment Show North East
Mobile Mini UK, one of the leading worldwide providers of portable accommodation and secure storage containers, has been announced as the headline sponsor for The SHE Show North East, taking place on the 26th April 2022 at St James’ Park, the home of Newcastle United.
Established in 2009, The SHE (Safety, Health and Environment) Show conference and exhibition is a national event held at three locations across the UK. The annual series of events offers a dynamic line-up of speakers designed to inspire, motivate and provide new and innovative thought patterns to over 240 delegates. Initially targeting senior SHE professionals from cross-sectoral industries – who form the vast majority of the audience.
The forward-thinking and out of the box nature of the event also attracts Senior Managers/Directors outside of the SHE arena. Created with the ambition to change thought patterns and help make a difference to how people, feel, think and importantly behave to encourage safe working environments, emphasising the importance of creating a successful SHE culture within any organisation and encourages all departments to resonate with the view that Safety, Health and Environment should be seen as a value and not just a priority.
This year’s prestigious conference is all about people, behaviour and culture change and focuses on six key elements, Overcoming Adversity and Resilience, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Behaviour and Culture Change, Climate Change and Sustainability, Inspirational Leadership, Legal Advice and Updates.
Mobile Mini UK, headquartered in Stockton-on-Tees, has a fleet of over 40,000 portable units for a variety of storage solutions and 16 strategically placed sites throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The company has had an enviable record of zero reportable accidents for over two years and has won multiple health and safety awards in recent times including being named ‘Safety Team of the Year Highly Commended Winner’ at the last International Safety Awards and winning the North East Business Award for its COVID-19 response.
Both Mobile Mini and The SHE Show are proud supporters of The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, this year’s Event Charity Partner for The SHE Show North East. The Lighthouse Charity provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to employees and families of those in the construction community. As part of its ongoing commitment to better assist employees with any mental health or wellbeing challenges they may face, Mobile Mini works in conjunction with the charity to provide a 24/7 helpline, offering a range of free and confidential support services, as well as access to expert guidance on a wide variety of welfare issues involving stress, anxiety and depression.
Chris Watcham, Director of HSE, Fleet and Facilities at Mobile Mini said: “Mobile Mini is proud to be the headline sponsor for The SHE Show North East 2022 event. We are particularly honoured to be featuring alongside the Event Charity Partner, The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, furthering our collaboration and ongoing commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and the wider construction community.”
Vicki Washington, Founder and Managing Director at The SHE Show said: “We are delighted to have Mobile Mini onboard as Headline Sponsor of The SHE Show North East. As a company, it is important for us to align our brand with other organisations who share the same values, ethos and commitment to Safety, Health and Environment.”
7% of employees at Mobile Mini are now qualified Mental Health First Aiders and the company continues to adapt its approach to better support general well-being and work-life balances. The business was proud to support the NHS with units throughout COVID-19, as well as rolling out life-saving defibrillator equipment to all branches and investing in new safety features on an upgraded fleet of crane-mounted trucks.
