National construction and engineering firm JN Bentley has won the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Linda Grant Health & Safety Award for flood relief works carried out at Manor Vale Lane in North Yorkshire.
The scheme, delivered by Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB), a joint venture between JN Bentley and Mott MacDonald, was recognised for its health and safety record, levels of innovation, workforce involvement, interaction with general public and participation with client Yorkshire Water.
The judges were particularly impressed with the 24 letters of praise the team received from local residents (versus no complaints), and the accident frequency rate of zero.
Flood relief works at Pasture Terrace in Beverley, East Yorkshire, were also shortlisted by CECA in the Contract of the Year category.
This is the second time in three years that JN Bentley has won the Linda Grant Health and Safety Award after reservoir works at Riding Wood in West Yorkshire secured the same prize in 2011.
