President's Award for Health & Safety

We're delighted to have received a prestigious President’s Award from RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents), having been awarded 10 consecutive gold awards for health and safety.

The award recognises our continued dedication to ensuring our people and stakeholders get home safely at the end of every working day. Beard is among a select few in the construction sector to not only receive a President’s Award, but for the whole company rather than an individual division or region.

Through our offices in Swindon, Bristol, Oxford and Guildford, we've completed a wide range of construction projects including new build, restoration and refurbishment in a variety of sectors. In 2022 alone, we completed 45 projects spanning everything from car showrooms, GP surgeries and care homes, to primary schools, housing and religious buildings.

One internationally-recognised award follows another as Beard recently achieved a coveted gold accreditation for staff health and wellbeing from Investors in People.

Health and safety is a fundamental priority for all organisations, especially those in the construction sector. As is such, the safety of all those that work for us or interact with us is paramount at Beard. While a reduction in slips, trips and falls and our overall accident rate in 2022 is more than enough reward for us, we’re delighted to accept the President’s Award from RoSPA. It’s fantastic recognition for our entire team who have worked so hard to achieve 10 consecutive gold health and safety awards.


The RoSPA awards scheme is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded. We are thrilled that Beard has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.
