    IOSH-linked group wins safety award

    IOSH-linked group wins safety award

    A group with strong links to the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH)
    has won a safety award for the second successive year.

    South Cumbria Occupational Health and Safety Group (SCOHSG) has been given a silver honour in this year’s Alan Butler Awards in recognition of how it protects employees in its region.

    This week’s Safety Groups UK (SGUK) awards were held at London’s House of Lords in Westminster.

    SCOHSG collaborates closely with the South Cumbria and North Lancashire district arm of the IOSH.

    The pair have a shared committee and also frequently meet to publicise how health and safety procedures can be to the advantage of employers and employees in the area.

    Health and safety at work tie-up

    There is a lot of overlap between the two groups concerning health and safety at work. Several people have shared membership of the IOSH district branch and SCOHSG.

    The organisations put on special events for smaller companies under their remit to highlight how workers can be kept safe.

    These include site visits, which enable companies to see how effective health and safety management systems work.

    SCOHSG’s membership secretary and district chair Geoff Price was presented with the award.

    Asbestos on programme of topics

    Last year, the pair’s agenda included topics such as well-being and health, environmental risks, asbestos and supervising risk assessments.

    Mr Price claims that health and safety ought to be paramount to any firm’s operations. He says SCOHSG thinks several firms in its field are bettering their standing, results and good name by strengthening their workplace safety practices.

    Mr Price calls the “tremendous honour” a fitting tribute to the effect SCOHSG and the local ISOH has had.

    The group was scored on a variety of key criteria.
