JN Bentley foreman scoops client health and safety award

JN Bentley foreman, Jody Belcher, has scooped United Utilities’ Award for Outstanding Contribution to Health, Safety and Wellbeing.


Presented by United Utilities Capital Delivery, Commercial and Engineering Director, Jane Simpson, at their Health and Safety Step Up Day, the award recognises Jody’s commitment to health, safety and wellbeing, the standard of his morning safe start briefings and the positive culture he’s helped build on site.


Jody told us, “I was delighted to win the award – even if it came as a bit of a surprise!


“For me, I was picking it up on behalf of the team, not just myself.


“On this project we’ve created an environment where everyone looks out for one another and cares about their mates. There’s mutual respect between everyone, which means people take ownership for all aspects of their work, including safety.


“The briefings we have every morning are key to this. Everyone – including subcontractors and the client – contribute to the discussions, ideas are taken on board, and it sets us all up for a good, safe day on site.


“I’m passionate about health, safety and wellbeing and genuinely care about my team. I’m pleased this comes across and is helping us to deliver a really strong project.”


Director, Nick Lister, commented, “Having been a part of Jody’s morning safe start briefings, it is not surprising he won this award because they are fantastic.


“2022 saw JN Bentley’s biggest improvement in health and safety performance. We ended the year with an All-Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR) of 0.93, the lowest we have ever recorded.


“This was only possible because of the engagement and dedication of colleagues like Jody and his team on site – so thank you and well done for leading by example.”


Jody has worked for JN Bentley for 20 years. He began as a general construction operative before qualifying as a joiner. He’s now a foreman and has enjoyed spells delivering projects across the UK, including reservoirs in Yorkshire, pipelines in the East Midlands and now a major water treatment works upgrade in the Ribble Valley.
