Award nominees were selected by Business Unit Presidents and submitted to Bradie for consideration.
Congratulations to these winners on their outstanding efforts.
KBR’s Mark Richards, Contract Manager, Government Services EMEA, was the first recipient of this year’s KBR CEO Award for HSSE Excellence. Located at the British Embassy in Mogadishu, Somalia, Mark has made tremendous contributions to health and safety for the past three years. His dedication, leadership and passion for safety set him apart from his peers. Mark is held in high esteem by his employees, managers and our clients, epitomizing KBR’s core values and our Zero Harm 24/7 culture.
“Mark’s actions and commitment to KBR’s Zero Harm culture makes him extremely deserving of this award,” said Andrew Barrie, KBR President, Government Solutions EMEA. “Even as one individual, his actions have a tremendous impact on our business and to our Zero Harm program as a whole. I want to offer my thanks and congratulations to Mark for his contributions. We in GS EMEA are very proud to have one of our own win this award for the second year running!”
The next winner of this year’s award is the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) IV – Task Order 0009 team. Based in the Arabian Peninsula, Task Order 0009 is comprised of approximately 700 professionals represented by 17 nationalities working in two different countries (Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates), and even with all the distance and diversity they embody a Zero Harm culture. In 2019, they worked 2.3 million work hours without a recordable incident, increasing their cumulative total to 3.9 million work hours over 644 consecutive days in one of the harshest environments in the world.

“We are very proud of the safety accomplishments by both the Task Order 0009 and BLADE Project,” said Nick Anagnostou, KBR Vice President, HSSE. “Their work demonstrates the key principles of Zero Harm and their actions and attention to safety procedures are habits that we should all imitate.
