I have arrived on the Ulverston site for PM Group as a Health & Safety Advisor, in building 11. Last Thursday I had an issue, that was not getting sorted for me, I was close to going for lots of beers. For one reason or another the DXI Lads came to me and said they would take care of it for me.
It wasn’t a small job by any means, it completely took me back, that it wasn’t even their job to do, the flexibility they showed and willingness to help, with a smile on their face I might add.
