POLLARD SITE MANAGER WINS PRESTIGIOUS BSG SAFETY
At a ceremony held in October at the Williams Formula 1 Conference Centre, Pollard Site Manager, John Venner, was awarded the accolade of Site Manager of the Year Central & West. In front of 250 attendees, John was presented with his award for his commitment to outstanding Health & Safety on a £4.25m retail shell scheme in Street for Bristol based developer, Canynge Bicknell.
The judging panel praised John not only for his commitment and leadership to health and safety on site itself but also his management of a challenging environment featuring a busy retail park adjacent to the development with shared estate roads.
BSG Managing Director, Paul Kimpton said:
“The BSG Awards ceremony was once again a national celebration of our members’ dedicated commitment to Health and Safety in construction. John Venner should be immensely proud of his achievement and highly commended for his admirable approach to reducing risk in the workplace. It is BSG Members like Pollard who make a significant contribution to raising the bar when it comes to health and safety standards across the sector, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Bill Badham, Managing Director of Pollard commenting on the award said:
John is a worthy winner of such a prestigious award. His commitment to ensuring the highest standards of health & safety are achieved on site is second to none and we are thrilled that his efforts have been recognised by such a highly respected organisation as BSG. As an organisation we place the highest importance on our approach to health & safety and to receive an award such as this for one of our staff is immensely pleasing and on which we are very proud.”
Pollard was also shortlisted in two other categories of Project Award for Street Retail Park and Regional Company Award.
