I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this success and call on each of us to continue to adopt a questioning attitude, implement a rigorous and thorough approach and effect meaningful communications in every aspect of health and safety delivery across all of our activities.”
John Abraham, MWH design and construction managing director commented, “To receive industry recognition from these organisations re-iterates the high standards we expect and maintain within health and safety. Congratulations and thank you to everyone for their dedication in keeping all of our workplaces safe.”
Announcing the award Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council said, “We send our warmest congratulations to all winners. What the winners have demonstrated is that well managed health and safety ensures the safety and wellbeing of their employees, contributes to business effectiveness and success. The health and safety of employees is non-negotiable and the winners have shown their determination, like us, to ensure that no one is killed, injured or made ill by work activities.”
Over 1000 organisations from across the world apply for the RoSPA and BSC awards each year; the awards are acknowledged by industry and the U.K. Health and Safety Executive as a powerful motivator for achieving high safety standards. Awards are made as a result of professional, administrative adjudication under supervision of an independent, expert Adjudication Panel. These awards recognise and reward organisations that show a real commitment to improving corporate health and safety, not only through the reduction of the number of accidents, but through the introduction, application, compliance and continual improvement of health and safety management.
