Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated us on our success in winning an International Safety Award 2017 with Distinction: “The British Safety Council commends DCUK FM on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and efforts to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
“Sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks at work brings lasting benefits for workers, their families, businesses and society as a whole. By celebrating and sharing the achievements of the winners of the International Safety Awards, we encourage businesses all over the world to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business. Our warmest congratulations!”
The International Safety Awards is an annual scheme designed to recognise and reward good health and safety management by organisations of all sizes and sectors around the world during the previous calendar year.
Organisations answer a series of online questions about their management of occupational health and safety risks at a specific site or business unit which are marked by independent adjudicators. If the application meets the required standard, a pass, merit or – for really exceptional submissions – a distinction is awarded.
