British Safety Council launches 2016 International Safety Awards

International Safety Award - some of the past winners

International Safety Award – some of the past winners

The 2016 International Safety Awards have been launched by the British Safety Council in order to recognise businesses and organisations from around the world who have demonstrated a commitment to protecting their workers from the risk of being injured or made ill at working in 2015.

The awards, now in their 58th year, play an important role in the promotion of the social, economic and business benefits of protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of employees and others.

Organisations of all sizes, types and industries can enter the awards, including both members and non-members of the British Safety Council, both nationally and internationally.

In 2015, a diverse range of organisations won an International Safety Award, including  businesses from the UK, Africa, Asia, mainland Europe, the Middle East and the West Indies.

Previous winners have included Alisal Logistics of Turkey, Bahrain National Gas Company, Bovis Homes, Delhi International Airport, Glasgow Airport, GlaxoSmithKline, Kuwait National Petroleum Company, Kelloggs, Kingston University, Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd and the Rugby Football Union’s Twickenham Stadium.

Opening the awards, Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The British Safety Council’s vision is that no one should be injured or made ill at work, anywhere in the world. Our International Safety Awards seek to recognise and reward organisations who have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges a commitment to protecting the health, safety and welfare of their staff and others who could be affected by their work activities.

“Winning an International Safety Award enables organisations to share their achievement with their employees, clients, contractors, local community and the wider public. It may help inspire other organisations to also make that commitment and emulate the success of our winners.

“Health and safety, managed sensibly and proportionately, brings real and lasting benefits for workers, their families, businesses and society as whole.

“I look forward to inviting this year’s International Safety Award winners to celebrate at our Gala Dinner at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday 6 May 2016.”

The closing date for applications is Monday 8 February 2016. Enter your application.
