Bewley Homes wins an internationally renowned award for focus on health and safety

12 Apr 2024

Bewley Homes’ continued focus on health and safety, for its staff and subcontractors, has once again been rewarded at the highest level.

The top-rated housebuilder is celebrating winning its fourth consecutive silver award in the internationally recognised Health and Safety Awards scheme organised by RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).

With almost 2,000 entries annually, from over 50 countries and impacting over seven million employees, the awards showcase a platform to spotlight unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and excellence in health and safety.

The award underpins Bewley’s determination to ensure its workers and contractors all get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Matt Jenkins, Health, Safety and Environment Manager, at Bewley Homes, said: “Being awarded a silver RoSPA for the fourth year in a row is a great achievement but ensuring everyone who works on a Bewley site – staff and subcontractors – are safe at work is our number one priority. We will be doing everything to further improve in all the areas we can and keep up the very high standards we set.”

Andrew Brooks, Managing Director at Bewley Homes, said: “The award demonstrates that we are committed to all our stakeholders – staff, customers and sub contractors to ensure, wherever possible, that the highest standards of health and safety are in operation every day.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Director, said: “Workplace accidents don’t just pose financial risks and operational disruptions; they significantly impact the quality of life for individuals. This is why acknowledging and rewarding excellent safety performance is vital.

“We are delighted Bewley has won a silver RoSPA award and would like to congratulate the company on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.

The award comes on the back of two prestigious accolades, last month, with staff at Bewley celebrating recognition for exceptional levels of customer satisfaction reported by homeowners in an independent survey.
