Health, Safety and Wellbeing Excellence (Project) - Construction News Awards 2019
Open to all UK projects that achieved practical completion, or equivalent, and demonstrated outstanding performance in health and safety, during the calendar year 2018.
This project award is for construction teams who have shown fantastic commitment to health and safety on a particular project, achieving exemplary standards. This category celebrates the best of project-based H&S and wellbeing in UK construction, and the entries should reflect that.
Judges will look for evidence of innovation in H&S and wellbeing, specific project-based initiatives designed to embed a positive culture, the site-based communication of best practice, the results/ improvements this has led to on the project and how learnings can be transferred to future schemes.
To be eligible, entries must provide a detailed breakdown of the project’s entire health and safety record, not just for 2018.
Contractors can also enter the health, safety and wellbeing excellence company award.
The entry should have one main proposer but please also provide details of other relevant companies involved (as a minimum, the entry should contain details of the client, the principal contractor/engineer and a specialist contractor). Larger projects in particular will be expected to reflect the size of the team.
Each application should be accompanied by three different photographs of the completed project, and may be supported by up to three different photographs of the project under construction.
The judges will be looking for evidence, in the calendar year 2018, of:
- Meeting or exceeding client demands on H&S and wellbeing
- The outcomes of H&S initiatives taken
- Commitment to staff training on the project
- Innovation in H&S approach and an embedded culture of H&S on the project
- Commitment to improving employee mental health and wellbeing
- How you have extended your H&S commitment on future work
- Any other stand-out performance that particularly merits this award – the ‘wow’ factor
