Pepsico to represent Ireland at European safety awards

Food and drink manufacturer Pepsico Ireland has won a national award for best practice in relation to employee health and safety.

The group, who’s core brands include Pepsi and Walkers, were selected by the Health and Safety Authority (HAS) as the Irish winners of the European Good Practice Awards. The group will now represent Ireland and compete with a range of other organisations at the European Awards Ceremony in spring 2011.

The theme for this year’s awards is safe maintenance and Pepsico Ireland impressed the judges with its commitment to maintaining a safe workplace for its employees. HSE chief executive, Martin O’Halloran said: “I’m very pleased to announce PepsiCo Ireland as the winners of the Irish phase of this prestigious European competition. It is encouraging that organisations like PepsiCo continue to place worker safety, health and welfare at the heart of their operations during unprecedented economic difficulties.”

Adrian Williams of PepsiCo added: “We are delighted to accept the award and also proud to be representing Ireland in Europe. Employee safety, health and welfare is our number one priority, ensuring we achieve our safety mission that “no one gets hurt” while working for our organisation.”

Pepsico Ireland was also shortlisted in the Manufacturing category of this year’s SHP IOSH Awards.
