The Beaumont Safety Trophy is awarded annually for the individual or company for the best new device or method of working initiated for preventing accidents in the Construction Industry.
A previous winner was BAM Construction and Bull Products who developed a wireless Exclusion Zone beacon. This is a system that can be set up in zones on a site that ensures the safety of workers undertaking high risk activities in these areas. These alarms are activated when unauthorised personnel try to gain access. They can also be used in combination with physical barriers too. This entry won the 2018 Beaumont Safety Trophy, which was presented at the 2019 Annual Awards Dinner.
