Outstanding health and safety in challenging times

Last Friday marked our annual Health and Safety awards held at our Head Office in Dronfield. All our teams strive for the utmost health and safety standards on-site, and this year was no exception.

The awards are an important way to recognise the achievements made by our teams, who work hard to deliver exceptional health and safety standards on all our sites. This year it was the Royce Discovery Centre team who won the Building Safety award, with Joe Briggs receiving the Young Achiever award.

Royce Discovery Centre

Comprising of Andy Greaves, Dean Briggs, Phil Horsfield and Joe Briggs, the high-profile city centre scheme for the University of Sheffield tested the team’s ability both technically and logistically. This was our first site that utilised a biometric access control system and is one of the most audited and visited sites we’ve ever had.

The site team worked cohesively, always sharing information to ensure everyone in the team felt valued and had something to add. They consistently went above and beyond, creating good working relationships with the client to the benefit of the project. The team also worked hard to control hazards with the additional challenges caused by CV-19.

Joe Briggs

After winning a G4C Award this year, Joe receives the Young Achiever award for his work on the Royce Discovery Centre project. He was allocated responsibility for several parts of the Health and Safety Executive system, making himself a valuable member of the project and always working hard to actively complete project tasks.

Since starting with us, Joe has shown interest and enthusiasm in his work and goes the extra mile to support his site team, approaching each task with a smile and humour - a valuable member of the team.
