Why Leza Webb’s our hero…
Leza started her role with Wessex Water at the beginning of the pandemic.
Leza joined us from the rigours of general haulage, long days and delivering every pallet on her lorry, but it had been time for a change since funding her own training for her licence in 2017.
As soon as she walked into Wessex in March 2020, a lot of staff started to work from home or had to shield, including some fellow tanker drivers. Leza came to terms with her new job very quickly after some intensive quality training from the company, and quickly engaged in some team building with colleagues in her team to help with efficiency.
Not only did she excel in what she did very quickly, she helped to meet targets and refused to take much holiday due to the importance of her role in keeping the community safe.
Despite the need to keep the loads moving she has also found time to do extra operational and sometimes emergency tasks for site managers along the way, earning her further recognition.
Leza has even been driving a biogas truck for Wessex from the gas produced by the treatment of her loads! The good news is that she’ll be able to catch up with her holiday over the next year, which she thoroughly deserves!
