The Recipients

Dee Nolan – Matching Brick Bedminster (H&S Champion)
Dee is slightly different to the others as she wasn’t necessarily given an active H&S role. What Dee has done is off the back of her attending a first aid course, she took it upon herself to suggest new procedures regarding first aid that she felt would benefit the business. I admire people like Dee who aren’t afraid to poke their heads above the parapet to try and help improve a business.


Kris Judge – uPlastics
Drawing on the experience from Joe and his own previous roles, Kris takes great pride in being the H&S representative.

Jo Kesbey – Bespoke Brick
Jo is the kind of person a business needs, relentless and passionate about her role.

Natasha Wakefield – LBT Facades
Natasha faces different challenges beyond H&S at LBT, yet still ensures her tasks are completed without skipping a beat.

Matthew Barnes – Brickability Bridgend
Matthew is a huge advocate for H&S and a useful asset for Brickability, not only as a direct employee but to the group.

Jeanette Ward – Brick Services
Jeanette was handed the H&S reigns when Brick Services were lingering towards the bottom of the league table, she has turned it around impressively.

Sue Underwood – Crest Building Products
Sue is a plate spinner, what best describes sue is organised chaos, I admire how she has embraced the challenges she has faced.
