Scheme to recognize and celebrate excellence in occupational health and safety management
THE British Safety Council has formally launched its 2014 International Safety Awards, which are designed to recognize an organization’s commitment to good health and safety management during the 2013 calendar year.
Next year will mark the 56th year of the Awards, which have made a significant contribution over that time to promoting and celebrating the benefits that well-managed and proportionate workplace health and safety bring.
The awards are open to organizations of all sizes and sectors, both members of the British Safety Council and non-members in the UK and overseas, and applications are welcomed from both from past winners and first-time entrants.
Launching the awards, Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, said: ‘Excellent health and safety management is good for people and good for business; it makes workplaces safer and healthier. Good health and safety is good business.
‘The International Safety Awards recognize those organizations from around the globe that have shown a real commitment and dedication to keeping their workplaces and workers healthy and safe.
‘By winning an International Safety Award, an organization can enhance its reputation among employees, customers and shareholders, publicize its achievements in managing health and safety, and encourage other businesses around the world to strive to ensure that no one is injured or made ill at work.’
