Hughes and Salvidge has been presented with International Safety Award for protecting its employees from the risk of injury and ill health at work
We won an International Safety Award from the British Safety Council in recognition of our commitment to keeping our workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2018 calendar year.
Now in their 61st year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year.
In 2019, 507 organisations won an International Safety Award. They span all sectors and are drawn from the United Kingdom, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. 56 organisations were awarded a Distinction, 248 organisations were awarded a Merit and 203 organisations achieved a Pass.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Hughes and Salvidge on our success in winning an International Safety Award 2019: “The British Safety Council commends Hughes and Salvidge on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and efforts to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through work – anywhere in the world. Realising it requires more than legislation; people committed to health and safety, and increasingly also to workplace well-being, make it a reality and inspire others to create workplaces that are a key force for good.
“The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that an increasing number of companies recognise that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks is a business enabler, benefiting employees, organisations and society as a whole. By celebrating the achievements of 507 winners of the 2019 International Safety Awards and 61 years of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
“Our warmest congratulations to Hughes and Salvidge. All of those working at Hughes and Salvidge should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
