National Winners revealed at NHBC Health and Safety Awards
The best site managers in UK house building have been commended by the NHBC for their commitment to health and safety best practice.
At the NHBC Health and Safety Awards in Birmingham, seven site managers received National Winner and Runner-up accolades in recognition of their outstanding contribution to health and safety management – from preliminary risk assessment right the way through to implementation on-site.
Among the award winners was Jeff Calder of Barratt Homes North Scotland, named National Winner in the Large Builder category for his work on the Ness Castle development near Inverness. Graham Mann of Stewart Milne Homes (North Scotland) won the Medium Builder category for a highly bespoke development at Regency Place in Countesswells, Aberdeen, while Dean Ellis of Duchy Homes took home Small Builder award for The Ings site at Wetherby.
A further 20 site managers achieved Highly Commended status following the Commended awards they won during the competition’s first round in May.
Organised by NHBC and independently judged by a panel of health and safety professionals from CITB, the Construction Products Association and the Health and Safety Executive, the awards are in their ninth year and are the only health and safety recognition scheme in the UK tailored to house builders.
NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “It’s been a great year for the awards with a record number of entries. We had an outstanding shortlist of finalists who are showcasing and sharing best practice across the industry. This year’s winners have demonstrated their on-going commitment to health and safety, which is undoubtedly a hugely important part in delivering high quality new homes. We offer all the winners our congratulations.”
The full list of winners can be found on the NHBC website.
