As part of the 12-month deal, Hewden will provide a comprehensive package of equipment including excavators and dumpers to the company, together with skilled operatives, on a national scale.
Donna Stevens, a Buyer at Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions said: “Hewden was able to meet all of our key supplier measurements, including those around accreditation and national coverage.
“Most importantly, the company’s attention to safety is as stringent as our own – an important factor, and a key component of Balfour Beatty’s journey to Zero Harm across the business.”
The Zero Harm initiative is a Balfour Beatty-wide safety target to remove risk from the company’s operations, focussing on a number of key measurements, such as zero work related health incidents, zero injuries to members of the public and zero at fault road traffic collisions.
These stringent measures extend across all activities in every aspect of the organisation.
Any Hewden equipment and any operator or service engineer working on site must follow Balfour Beatty’s safety principles.
Chris Matthew, national account manager at Hewden said: “Our team works closely with Balfour Beatty to ensure our credentials are in line with the company’s safety and sustainability initiatives. This new agreement is a testament to the continuing success of our relationship with the company.
“What’s more, with our network of depots we’re able to support the company’s operations nationwide.”
