Home building company wins health and safety awards

The home building company Berkeley Homes, which is based in West London, has been presented with multiple health and safety prizes at the recent National House-Building Council (NHBC) Health and Safety Awards.

The company not only won the Best Site Award 2013 in both the regional and national Large Housebuilder categories for its Wimbledon Hill Park site, but Berkeley also took home Highly Commended awards for its Ebury Square and Napier West 3 sites.

Commenting on the wins, Berkeley’s managing director Tom Pocock said:

“This is a fantastic achievement and a true recognition of the effort put in by all of the teams who work so hard to ensure that our sites maintain a high standard of health and safety.
“We pride ourselves on our positive health and safety culture, collaborating with sub-contractors to ensure excellence across all sites, so it is a real honour to receive these accolades from such a high-calibre organisation as the NHBC.”

The awards aim to recognise and reward businesses which demonstrate exceptional commitment to health and safety. Companies that invest in health and safety training for workers, implement safety rules and effectively plan and monitor health and safety on sites and during projects are the ones who will be celebrated in the NHBC Health and Safety Awards.
