Announcing the results Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, said, “We send our warmest congratulations to all 550 winners. Over the last year I have had the opportunity to meet with the managers and employees of a number of the winning organisations and have been struck by the commitment and dedication they have shown to managing health safety in a proportionate, sensible and effective manner.
“What the winners have demonstrated is that well-managed health and safety ensures the safety and wellbeing of their employees, contributes to business effectiveness and success. The health and safety of employees is non-negotiable and the winners have shown their determination, like us, to ensure that no one is killed, injured or made ill by work activities.”
“The British Safety Council is proud to congratulate all of the winners on their success and effectiveness in keeping their employees healthy and safe.”
Winners had the opportunity to celebrate their success at the British Safety Council’s awards banquet at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on Friday 18 May. Distinction winners who attended were presented with their awards before an audience of their peers and VIPs.
