The British Safety Council’s International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations who have demonstrated a real commitment to protecting their workers from the risk of injury and ill health during the 2015 calendar year.
These awards are open to organisations of all types, sizes and sectors in the UK and internationally – both members of the British Safety Council and non-members – and are independently adjudicated. The aim of this awards scheme is to promote social, economic and business benefits of employers in maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “Winning an International Safety Award enables organisations to share their achievement with their employees, clients, contractors, local community and the wider public. It may also help inspire other organisations to make that commitment and emulate the success of our winners.”
These prestigious awards relate to the health and safety management at a specific site or business unit and organisations can enter as many sites or divisions as they wish. High performing winning organisations are shortlisted for additional ‘Sector Awards’ recognising outstanding sites and business units across a number of business sector categories.
All organisations entering the awards can also nominate employees for two awards recognising individuals who have gone the extra mile to help keep their colleagues and others healthy and safe during 2015.
The ‘Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ Award recognises non-health and safety personnel aged 24 or over, while the ‘Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ Award recognises non-health and safety personnel aged under 24.
