The British Safety Council has launched the 2016 International Safety Awards which 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 work during 2015.
Now in their 58th year, the International Safety Awards have played an important role in helping to promote the social, economic and business benefits of employers taking sensible and effective steps to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees and others.
The awards are open to organisations of all sizes, types and industry sectors – both members of the British Safety Council and non-members – in the UK and internationally.
Last year, 515 organisations from a diverse background 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.
