Jason Anker MBE endorses colourful life-saving training system @HillmontAssoc

Hillmont Associates, the global Health, Safety, Environment & Quality (HSEQ) Consultancy which recently became the first company in the UK to launch the world-renowned E-Colors Personality Diversity Indicator (PDI) has received a glowing endorsement from Jason Anker MBE.

Jason, who was paralysed from the waist down following an avoidable accident at the age of 24, is renowned in the construction sector for delivering inspirational and motivational behavioural safety speeches.

He said. “Hillmont Associates introduced me to E-Colors. After completing the PDI my E-Colors are Yellow/Blue – ‘The Relating Socialiser’. The information I received in the Premium Report was so accurate. It was exactly me. I was amazed! The subsequent awareness and training sessions I have had with Hillmont Associates have really helped me understand myself and how I interact with others. From my experience I believe E-Colors has the capability to improve safety on construction sites.

“Could I or my workmates have acted differently on the day of my accident, having known our E-Colors? It is possible. It’s an incredible tool and I look forward to seeing it implemented through UK organisations, to help people understand themselves and others and to save lives,”

A market leading PDI system used by some of the world’s leading companies, including Chevron, E-Colors has been proven to improve communication, productivity and most importantly, safety in all environments.

The system identifies team members with particular personality traits by using a simple PDI questionnaire. Each personality is identified by a combination of colours; red ‘Doer’, yellow ‘Socialiser’, green ‘Thinker’ and blue ‘Relator’.

Organisations and individuals across the globe use the information from discovering their E-Colors to develop a greater self-awareness and understand how to better interact, communicate, and work with others.

People with different E-Colors can react differently in specific situations. Understanding how colleagues might respond in critical circumstances can allow them to improve how they work together, which in turn can significantly reduce the risk of accidents on site, resulting in reduced downtime and more importantly, lives saved.

The system can be particularly beneficial when staff are working across multiple sites, contracts and hazardous environments, to build highly cohesive teams that will be more cooperative and effective in achieving goals.

Mark Wilkinson (FInstLM / CMIOSH), Managing Director of Hillmont Associates, said: “It’s amazing to get such a fantastic endorsement from Jason, who has many years’ experience working in the construction sector with so many well-known companies.”

“E-Colors is a tool for life, with it’s simple and immediate application to help people not only understand themselves better, but those close to them, be it at work, or in their personal lives. It assists the development of skills and managing any potential limiters to effectively interact better with people on a daily basis.

An increasing number of organisations, particularly those in the construction sector and high-risk industries, place a growing emphasis not only on health and safety, but also on creating a better culture. These companies recognise the substantial benefits E-Colors offers.”

Hillmont Associates is delivering E-Colors Awareness Sessions and further training solutions for managing personnel and operations across a variety of industries including construction, aviation, energy and events. The company is also holding Public Awareness Events on Friday 21st May and Saturday 26th June https://hillmontassociates.com/e-colors-pdi.
