Barratt Scotland scoops four site manager awards for health and safety

A total of four site managers from Barratt Homes in Scotland have been recognised at the National House-Building Council’s (NHBC) national Health and Safety Awards, more than any other housebuilder north of the border.

The recipients of this year’s awards are Alan Grant and Tom Hill (both from Barratt West Scotland), Allan Barclay (Barratt North Scotland) and Gareth Lewis (Barratt East Scotland).

In total, nine site managers from across Scotland’s house-building industry were awarded the highly sought after commendation from NHBC, of which four are from Barratt Homes in Scotland.

Launched in 2009 by the NHBC (the leading standard-setting and consumer protection body for new homes in the UK) with support from the Health and Safety Executive, Construction Skills and Constructing Better Health, the awards offer builders the opportunity to gain independent verification of the effectiveness of their health and safety practices.

Douglas McLeod, Regional Managing Director for Barratt Scotland, comments:

“We are absolutely delighted with the success of our four winning site managers at this year’s national awards. The commendations reflect our commitment as a housebuilder to operate some of the best-run and safest sites in Scotland.

“Our site managers play a lead role in ensuring all operatives on site are kept safe as well as protecting the general public. The commendations for our four winning site managers are well-deserved recognition of their own professional commitment.”
