Congratulating the winners, Neal Stone, acting Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The success criteria for the International Safety Awards is challenging and that rightly reflects the importance of achieving good standards of health and safety at work.
“The International Safety Awards shine a light on those businesses who are taking sensible and effective steps to protect employees from the risks of work-related injury and ill health, celebrating their efforts and encouraging other employers everywhere to give workers’ health and safety the priority it rightly deserves.”
He added: “Our vision is that no one should be injured or made ill at work, anywhere in the world, so it is heartening to see that winners of the 2015 International Safety Awards are truly international; from Aluminium Bahrain to Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited; Delhi International Airport to the Rugby Football Union’s Twickenham Stadium in the UK.
“Winners are drawn from a broad range of sectors dealing with different risks – from the construction, housebuilding and civil engineering sector, with winners such as Bovis Homes, Costain, ISG, J Murphy & Sons and Willmott Dixon; to the oil and gas sectors, with winners such as Bahrain National Gas Company, Kuwait National Petroleum Company and Offshore Design Engineering Ltd of Great Yarmouth.
“The transport and distribution sector is also well represented, with winners such as Kenya Airways (Nairobi), MTR Corporation of Hong Kong and National Express’s Birmingham Coach Station in the UK.
“Our warmest congratulations to all of the winners.”
