Many thanks to all those who have entered the UK Plant Operators Magazine, Operator of the Year for 2022. We can confirm that applications have now closed.

Following the success of last year’s competition when Dave Vickers was named the champion operator for 2021, we are delighted to say we have been overwhelmed by the response to this year’s campaign, with over 150 Plant Operators submitting their entry for the 2022 competition.

Each Plant Operator who has submitted an entry has now been sent a rather smart ‘Can You Dig It’ thermal mug.
We have asked the group to take a selfie with their mug, their machine and to tell us a little about what they are operating and the project they are working on. Look out for more of these images over the coming weeks…for now here is the first batch.

The entrants will then be whittled down to a final list who will be invited to participate in the 2022 UK Plant Operator of the Year competition.

Put finals day in your diary it’s Saturday September 10th at M O’Brien Group Sand Quarry, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 0AL.

It’s a fun day out for all the family where you will be able to:

  • Watch the finalist participate in a series of challenges to discover who will be crowned the 2022 champion and pick up £10,000 in prize money.
  • Set in a spectacular quarry, enjoy activities to keep the whole family entertained giving a real insight into the industry.
  • Visit the event sponsors, each of whom will have a stand to share how, they are making the industry safer, smarter and sustainable
  • Enjoy first class catering, listen to live event commentary, watch the big screen entertainment.

Don’t miss out…get your tickets here and be part of the very best industry day designed just for you, your family and friends.
