NHBC Health and Safety Awards

Get the industry-wide recognition you deserve

Regrettably, the 2020 Health & Safety Awards, which were due on 3 July, have been cancelled. We acknowledge that this will cause disappointment to the entrants who have worked hard to earn much-deserved recognition for their commitment to high standards. Our Health & Safety Services team have contacted each entrant to advise them of this news and set out next steps, including how to obtain a full refund.

What are the NHBC Health and Safety Awards?

Primarily designed to recognise and reward the very best in health and safety, the Awards are also helping to drive up safety standards in the industry by showcasing and sharing best practice.

Now in its 11th year, this is the ultimate competition for house builders with exceptional health and safety standards!

Why enter?

The NHBC Health and Safety Awards began in 2009 to recognise and reward excellence in health and safety practice.

Enter for the opportunity to:

  • Gain Industry-wide recognition

    Many home builders have invested heavily in their health and safety systems, processes and procedures. There's a lot of good practice in the industry and these Awards provide the perfect opportunity to showcase best practice and give industry-wide recognition to those leading the way.

  • Enhance your health and safety credentials

    An NHBC Health and Safety Award is a great credit to your company, and with so much emphasis today on health and safety competence, having one will certainly enhance your credentials in competitive tenders.

  • Boost your staff morale

    Use the Awards to recognise your team and raise staff morale. If your team is delivering excellence in health and safety - on site, at head office or through other company initiatives - enter them for an award and celebrate their success.

    A nomination not only boosts the morale of the individuals concerned, it encourages others to strive for the same success. The result is an improvement in health and safety standards right across your business.

  • Promote your business

    These awards offer a great PR opportunity with coverage in industry and local press, acknowledgement on the NHBC website, and the opportunity for you to name yourself as an NHBC Health and Safety Award Winner in your internal and external communications.
