Ørsted invest in award-winning safety leadership programme as part of the development of Hornsea 3

Ørsted are delighted to fund the operations of the award winning Thrive safety leadership programme until 2025, as part of the development of Hornsea 3.

Thrive safety leadership programme in action

Designed and delivered by training specialists Active Training Team (ATT), Thrive is a multi-media immersive safety leadership programme at a purpose-built centre close to Immingham Docks on the Humber. The programme is designed to transform behaviours and attitudes to safety and was originally developed to induct all personnel working on Hornsea 2. Thrive has received consistently positive feedback across a vertical slice of the organisation’s staff; 96% of participants have stated that they would apply what they learned on the programme in the workplace, encouraging Ørsted to extend its offer and ensure that Thrive supports those building and maintaining Hornsea 3.

Jason Ledden, Ørsted Deputy EPC Director for Hornsea Three and the Project manager for the Thrive facility development said: “We’re proud to continue our support with Thrive. With safety as our number one priority, the immersive experience is like no other, it leaves a lasting impact and helps keeps safety at the forefront of our minds. We look forward to introducing more colleagues over the coming years.”

The innovative programme will continue to benefit industries across the Humber. This initiative demonstrates Ørsted’s continued commitment to the region and the importance we place on safety both within our business and our supply chain. Ørsted’s continued support will help sustain close to 60 local jobs created by the facility.

Dermot Kerrigan, Co-Director of Active Training Team (ATT) said: “We’re delighted to be able to work with such innovative and forward-thinking organisations as Ørsted, who continue to uphold safety, health and wellbeing as a core value. The Thrive Safety Leadership Centre is here to support the burgeoning renewable and maritime sectors, setting the benchmark for safety leadership and creating a legacy for the industry.”

The original wind-power-themed scenario was developed in partnership with Ørsted as part of a 1.4 million-pound investment in safety, health and wellbeing. Thrive is also relevant for renewables, maritime and a range of other sectors. The facility is now increasingly utilised by other companies including: ABP, Siemens Energy and SSE.
