Businesses recognised for investment in workplace safety

A number of businesses that have invested in workplace safety have been recognised at an awards ceremony hosted by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

The awards were held at the Houses of Parliament and winners included:

  • Robert Scholefield, of Cereform, a subsidiary of Associated British Foods (ABF), who scored the highest mark of any candidate in the CIEH Level 4 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace assessment;€ᄄ
  • Simon Ellis, Operations Director of Envesca Ltd, for excellence as a health and safety trainer€ᄄ
  • Envesca – most outstanding CIEH-accredited training centre

Presenting the awards, CIEH President, Stephen Battersby, said: “I am delighted that responsible companies continue to realise the enormous business benefit of investing in safer workplaces and healthier workforces. At a time when health and safety is often ridiculed and trivialised in the media, the CIEH hopes that these awards will demonstrate that investment in staff health and safety training is as important as investing in new equipment or employing new staff.”

Commenting on his award, Robert Scholefield, said: “I am thrilled for achieving such a high mark in what is a very challenging and rewarding qualification. The new knowledge and skills I have acquired will help me to further contribute to improving safety and increasing company performance.”

Simon Ellis was also delighted to have received an award, he said: “At Envesca we have been working with businesses for over twenty years to help them achieve their workplace safety goals with effective and cost efficient training.

“Most of the businesses we work with understand the importance of quality training. They know that reducing risk and improving staff morale is essential to their bottom line and organisational performance.”
