Dorset construction company Greendale Construction has been awarded The Building Safety Group Site Managers Health and Safety award.
With over 55,000 site inspections carried out every year by the UK’s largest independent health and safety advisory group, there is fierce competition to win one of only seven awards and only the best site managers who maintain the highest standards of health and safety receive the accolade which is celebrating its tenth year.
The BSG chairman Michael Setter said: “A safe site is often a profitable site which is in everyone’s best interest.

Greendale’s Roy Howarth is this year’s winner in the South Central Region. BSG safety advisors nominated Howarth after visiting him at one of Greendale’s several sites under construction and a panel of distinguished judges singled him out for the award.
Greendale director Rob Hooker said: “It is great credit to Roy and the entire Greendale workforce that we’ve been honoured in this way. The health and safety of our staff and the public is always our primary concern.”
Setter personally presented Roy Howarth with his award on Friday April 9 2010. “It is a considerable achievement to be the recipient of one of these awards and I offer my warmest congratulations to each of the winners” said Setter.
Greendale is in a rich vein when it comes to honours this year. In January, Greendale became the first construction company in Dorset to achieve the silver award from ‘Investors In People’, recognising the company’s commitment to its employees, which in turn has led to increased performance and they were also fought off strong competition and were shortlisted in the top three for the Dorset Business KPMG Business of the Year Award.
