Hundreds of its vehicles will be hitting the road, displaying eye catching posters to help raise awareness and educate as part of Emcor’s ‘Protect Yourself. Be Breast Aware’ campaign. Emcor UK provides facilities management, engineering services and sustainable business solutions for a diverse range of private and public sector organisations.
Additionally throughout October, thousands of Emcor UK employees at 70+ locations nationwide will be donning Emcor pink hard hats to raise further visibility and awareness of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the UK’s most common form of cancer; it touches in some way virtually every one of the millions of men and women who use or pass by the buildings that Emcor manages and constructs across the UK, including airports, shopping centres, offices and government facilities.
Keith Chanter, CEO of Emcor UK commented, ‘Emcor has supported Breast Cancer Awareness for many years. We are delighted by the continued enthusiasm of our thousands of employees across the UK who are looking forward to showing their support for family, friends, colleagues and clients who have been, or could be affected by this disease.’
Across all of EMCOR’s offices and client sites, employees will be receiving ‘Toolbox Talks’ during October, educating them further about breast cancer, including highlighting the disease as a danger to men as well as to women.
In addition to the educational and awareness components of the campaign, there will be a number of fundraising elements. For example, for every Emcor pink hard hat worn in the UK, Emcor UK will donate £10 to a breast cancer charity. Also, Emcor’s offices and client sites across the country will be holding local fundraising events.
The campaign is part of Emcor Group Inc.’s ‘Emcor Touching Lives’ programme, a company wide approach to community involvement that reflects the company’s core values of customer focus, commitment to employees, integrity and entrepreneurship.
