The Barry Hobson Memorial Trophy

The Barry Hobson Memorial Trophy underlines the importance of Health and Safety. The Barry Hobson Trophy for Health and Safety achievement was born from JCW Groups desire to honour the memory of Barry Hobson, the company’s first Health and Safety Officer, after his unfortunate death in late 2011 from cancer.

Throughout the year, JCW Acoustic Floorings operatives are inspected on site by our Health and Safety staff. These inspections are unannounced and the performance of each team is scored against key criteria.

Checks are made on many elements of site activity such as the correct use of PPE, condition of tools, the correct signing in procedure is adhered to, first aid kits are present at the area of work and whether method statement and risk assessment s have been signed and understood.

The Barry Hobson Memorial Trophy and a £750 cash prize is then awarded to the winning team as recognition of the operatives achievements.

The monitoring of performance in this area has improved understanding of Health and Safety within the company as this process delivers education, training and an awareness of the importance of Health and Safety to all operatives.
