    Safety-conscious companies recognised

    Hundreds of businesses around the world have been celebrated for protecting the health and safety of their workers.

    A total of 436 companies of all sizes and sectors were given awards by the British Safety Council at its 2016 International Safety Awards, which shines a light on firms that are taking sensible and effective steps to keep their workers safe from injury and illness at work.

    ‘Encourage and inspire’

    Firms from the UK, Africa, Asia, mainland Europe and the Middle East were among the winners. Some 30 organisations were awarded a distinction, while 241 were awarded a merit and 165 achieved a pass.

    Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, was full of praise for the winners.

    “By celebrating and sharing the achievements of the winners of the International Safety Awards, we can encourage and inspire other businesses everywhere to follow their lead and give workers’ health and safety the priority it rightly deserves,” he said.

    “All the evidence shows that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks at work brings real and lasting benefits for workers, their families, businesses and society as whole. The British Safety Council’s vision is that no one should be injured or made ill at work – anywhere in the world.”

    Accidents at work

    Unfortunately, accidents at work are a common occurrence in the UK and around the world.

    Injuries can be minor, such as cuts and bruises, or more serious, like fractures and blows to the head, which require hospital treatment.

    Employers have a duty of care to protect workers at all times, something which is covered by the Health and Safety at Work Act.
