A Stanton Bonna employee has won an award for his commitment to health and safety and in particular for two inventions which make life safer for handlers of heavy precast concrete pipes.
Chris Taylor, Quality Control and Site Support Technician from Stanton Bonna, won an ‘Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety’ award for his passion and commitment to safety, in particular his initiatives in developing techniques and products that reduce or in some cases eliminate the contractor risks when handling and installing precast concrete products.
The prestigious British Precast Best Practice Awards event 2017 was held on Thursday 29th June at the modern Marriot Hotel in Leicester. This annual gathering shines a light on the wonderful work done on a daily basis by people and companies to improve safety and efficiency in the workplace. Awards include those for Health and Safety, Sustainability, Innovation, Project of the year and Outstanding Contribution to Health and Safety.
Two of the products that Chris has helped develop were also finalists in the Health and Safety category:
Stanton Bonna Gully Hook – designed to reduce risk when lifting, handling and installing a Gully unit. Can be used when Gully is laid down and found to be safer, quicker and easier than traditional methods.
Stanton Bonna Pipe Pusher – designed to eliminate the need for men in the trench during pipe installation. This innovative piece of equipment can be attached to an excavator via a quick coupling system and can be adjusted to the pipe size.
Stanton Bonna is based locally on Littlewell Lane, Stanton by Dale.
