All systems are go for the first time in two years due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Bermuda Construction Safety Council (BCSC), is all set to host the 2022 Premier’s Awards next week.

The event, hosted by the BCSC, honours “citizens from the Construction, Health Care, Essential and Frontline workers” in Bermuda.

As a safety precaution, BCSC Safety Manager, Brendon Harris said: “This is the first one since 2020, due to COVID-19 we had to postpone the 2021 awards until this year.

“In 2020 we were allowed 150 people with social distancing, mask wearing and COVID protcals,” he said.

“We will follow the same guidelines this year, even though they are not required.”

Asked what are some of the best highlights in this year’s presentation, he said: “The inclusion of elective categories to cover all aspects of building.”
