Obituary: Gordon Hicks MBE
Health and safety stalwart Gordon Hicks MBE passed away last month following a battle with illness.
Mr Hicks was a long-standing member of the London Health and Safety Group (LHSG), and held several positions on its executive committee, including 23 years as honorary secretary.
During his career Mr Hicks led and organised campaigns to offer health and safety support and advice to SMEs. In 1999, he was honoured with an MBE as recognition of his contributions to health and safety. He also won the Maurice Adamson Award in 2011, which is chosen by Safety Groups UK, for his outstanding individual contribution to the safety group movement.
In a statement, the LHSG said: “Owing to recent ill health, Gordon had been unable to attend LHSG meetings for a while. However, he continued to support, mentor and advise the committee, whenever he could. “Gordon will be greatly missed and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family.”
