Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded the British Safety Council International Safety Award 2013 for its industrial services work. This puts it in the top five percent of UK companies to have been accredited with a Distinction, and the only company to have achieved it on their first attempt.
As part of the award Interserve had to demonstrate that it promotes a positive safety culture, has comprehensive health and safety policies in place, and a marked commitment to health and safety from the shop floor to the boardroom. In addition, it also had to demonstrate the health and safety management competence and provide clear improvements in health and safety during 2012.
The scheme, in its 55th year, was developed to recognise outstanding health and safety management, as well as promoting the benefits that well-managed workplace practices can bring.
Guy Bruce, Managing Director - Industrial at Interserve said: “We are delighted the British Safety Council has recognised the importance and significance that our business places on health and safety. This award, once again, demonstrates our commitment to having a strong and robust safety management system, at the heart of our business. It highlights our continuous improvement and how we’re making our vision of a healthy and safe working environment a reality for us and our customers.”
The award will be presented at a winners’ banquet at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on Friday 26 April 2013.
