In a month that has seen the hottest day in 20 years, some incredible innovations and impressive individuals were recognised at the prestigious British Precast Best Practice Awards 2017.
The event was held on Thursday 29 June at the modern Marriot Hotel in Leicester. This annual gathering shines a light on the wonderful work done on a daily basis by people and companies to improve safety and efficiency in the workplace. Awards include those for Health and Safety, Sustainability, Innovation, Project of the year and Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety.
Chris Taylor, QC and Site Support Technician from Stanton Bonna, won an Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety for his passion and commitment to safety, particular his initiatives in developing techniques and products that reduce or in some cases eliminates the contractor risks when handling and installing precast concrete products.
Two of the products that Chris has helped develop were also finalists in the Health and Safety category:
Stanton Bonna Gully Hook – designed to reduce risk when lifting, handling and installing a Gully unit. Can be used when Gully is laid down and found to be safer, quicker and easier than traditional methods.
Stanton Bonna Pipe Pusher – designed to eliminate the need for men in the trench during pipe installation. This innovative piece of equipment can be attached to an excavator via a quick coupling system and can be adjusted to the pipe size.
Well done to all the people and companies that submitted entrees to the awards as all deserve a mention for their impressive efforts.
