Safety Solutions provider, Survitec, has sponsored the Neptune Award presented to the highest level of proficiency achieved over the course of a 54-week Royal Navy Survival Equipment Course.
Having previous presented the first award in December 2017, Survitec was on hand to congratulate the latest award winner, Naval Airman De-Ritis Murphy at RNAS Yeovilton in October.
The award was presented on behalf of Survitec by Mark Evans, Project Manager who served in the Royal Navy for 28 years as Chief Petty Officer for Survival Equipment. The previous recipients of the award were Naval Airman Davies and Naval Airman Collins.
“As a safety and survival solutions provider, we understand exactly what it takes to make high specification kit that can perform in the most extreme circumstances and save the lives of the personnel wearing and using it. But that’s only half the battle – unless equipment is efficiently maintained and effectively deployed it won’t perform the job it needs to, which is why it is vital that sufficient training is undertaken, and maintenance is regularly performed,” said David Griffiths, Vice President Defence Sales at Survitec.
“The Neptune Award embodies discipline, determination and a dedication to treat vital equipment with the respect it deserves. We’d like to personally congratulate Naval Airman De-Ritis Murphy and we look forward to continuing our involvement with this worthy award.”
