2017 Award winners

Health and Safety award winner (less than 250 employees) - Beresford's Flooring for Brilliant Ideas, The Hole System for Marking, Drilling, Plugging and Sealing

With a new lightweight system named ‘The Hole System’, a number of operations to the underside of Hollowcore floors can now be completed from ground level. This has reduced working at height, repetitive strain risks, exposure to dust and alkaline drilling wash water, and other risks associated with the regular assembly and moving of access equipment.

Health and Safety award winner (250 or more employees) - Brett Landscaping and Building Products for Improvements to Shot Blast Pallet Transfer Conveyor

Creating a combined scrap handling system and improvements to the pallet transfer conveyor have drastically reduced gate access frequencies and exposures in both scrap and pallet areas for Fork lifts and personnel alike. In addition, reduced manual handling and improved posture during work, with reductions in twisting and reaching, have also been recorded.

This award provides a mechanism for companies and the wider sector to celebrate the positive influence and impact that individuals and teams have made to create safer and healthier workplaces.
