The National House Building Council (NHBC) continues to host the only recognition scheme in the UK exclusively for home builders

The NHBC’s 10th annual Health and Safety awards, hosted by comedian Hugh Dennis, recognised notable figures in the UK home building community.

A Watford site manager, Paul Green, from Crest Nicholson, was praised by judges for his commendable range of initiatives focused on maintaining the health, safety and wellbeing of the people working on site and the public.

Mr Green was won the large builder category award.

The awards ceremony is independently judged by Construction Industry Training Board, the Construction Products Association and the Health and Safety Executive – an ultimate competition for house builders with exceptional health and safety standards.

Steve Wood, a NHBC Chief Executive, said: “It’s been a fantastic year with a record number of entries.

NHBC believes it is crucial to recognise and reward those house builders that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in preventing accidents and ill health, not just onsite, but the surrounding community it works in.”

Judges looked for site managers who continuously go above and beyond industry standards, by effective planning, well-organised sites and outstanding infrastructures that supports the site manager.
