Messenger BCR group worker wins awards at the Building Safety Group awards
The Building Safety Group (BSG) - the UK’s largest construction safety group - hosted its 2019 health and safety awards at the British Motor in Warwick.
On November 6 Wayne Gray, who lives in Bourne, won site manager of the year award for the Midlands.
He was nominated for the award by a third party in recognition of the management of a recently completed project for the National Trust Belton House stable block refurbishment.
Wayne said: "I'm not one hundred percent sure who nominated me.
He added: "I'm not sure who it would be."
Nominees were short listed following a judging process and invited to attend the awards ceremony at the British Motor Museum in Warwick.
The award criteria looked for a well trained, proactive and experienced site manager who has a good knowledge of health and safety, demonstrating effective planning, communication and consultation with the workforce.
During the ceremony Wayne was called to the podium and presented with his award.
Wayne, 46, said: "This was a very proud moment for me, and it's great to hear that the continued efforts from myself and all involved around me had been recognised."
At the age of 15, Wayne started work as an apprentice and now currently works for the Messenger BCR group who specialise in high quality conservation and construction, repair and renovation projects.
Paul Kimpton, BSG managing director, said: "The BSG Awards ceremony was once again a national celebration of our members’ dedicated commitment to health and safety in construction.
"Recognised award winners such as Wayne Gray should be immensely proud of their achievement and highly commended for their admirable approach to reducing risk in the workplace."
