NWCSG Win Coveted National Prize!

We are thrilled to announce that the North West Construction Safety Group has been named best UK safety group at a prize luncheon held at the House of Lords!

The Alan Butler Awards, arranged and fronted by Safety Groups UK, the umbrella organisation for UK safety groups, are intended to be an opportunity to recognise, celebrate and communicate the success of Safety Groups and individuals.

Following on from the silver award we received in 2015, both the gold and overall winner awards mark a significant step forward for the Group.

Three of the Group’s Executive Committee members, Kenny Humphreys, Neil Taylor and Philip Grundy, travelled down to the awards, held at the House of Lords, to attend the Luncheon and the various winners were awarded their prizes by the Lord Jordan CBE.

Speaking after the event, Kenny Humphreys said, “We were delighted to win the Gold Award. The Executive Committee have worked tirelessly for the past few years, promoting the Group and Health and Safety in general and the award was recognition of that.

We had no idea whatsoever that we had been shortlisted, so when the Overall Winner was announced as NWCSG, we were literally speechless. Those that know me will confirm that being speechless doesn’t normally apply to me!

The awards really are a fantastic accolade and I know I speak for everyone involved in the group when I say I am immensely proud of what we have achieved. From members, to speakers, to sponsors and to the Executive Committee, they’ve all been brilliant to work with and rather than viewing this as the pinnacle, we intend to use it as the catalyst to strengthen the Group’s position as the UK’s biggest construction industry interest group.”

When asked if he’d partaken in a few celebratory drinks after the event, Kenny declined to comment, but I think we all know the answer to that question anyway!
