We pride ourselves for our health and safety, so our Directors are always faced with an increasing struggle each year when choosing our Health and Safety Award winners.
Hosted by Managing Director Simon Carr, winners demonstrated consistently high health and safety audit scores, directors’ tours as well as general standards on site. The awards are made up of three categories: Civil Engineering Team of the Year, Building Team of the Year and Young Achiever of the Year.
This year it was Trainee Technician Ben Tonkinson based at The Glass Works project in Barnsley, who won Young Achiever of the Year. Ben displayed a great aptitude and a keen interest in health and safety and always asking questions.
Chris Orton and Sam Hodgkinson picked up the Civil Engineering Team of the Year for their work at Stocksbridge, working on a project for subsidiary company, Stonebridge Homes. The project included deep excavations and working adjacent a watercourse.
The Building Team of the Year went to Jon Watkins, Mick Wake, Graham Johnson and Sam Wood for their work on St George’s Hall refurbishment in Bradford. The site team always went above and beyond to control hazards on site.
Winners of the 2018 awards have shown commitment to delivering the highest standard of health and safety on their sites which is a key part of the Henry Boot culture. This year’s winners should be congratulated on their determination to achieve the highest levels of safety on their sites.
