International Safety Award
All four Intelect businesses have been awarded International Safety Award with a Merit from the British Safety Council.
Now in their 62nd year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year. The awards also recognise organisations that have shown commitment to well-being and mental health at work.
Since its foundation in 1957, the British Safety Council has campaigned tirelessly to protect workers from accidents, hazards and unsafe conditions, and played a decisive role in the political process that has led to the adoption of landmark safety legislation in the UK. Its members in more than 60 countries are committed to protecting and improving the well-being of workers, believing that a healthy and safe work environment is also good for business.
Nathan Jones, QHSE Manager of Intelect, commented: “We are very proud of this year’s bids the scores have been significantly improved and reflect the investment of the past year."
This year also sees one of the Intelect team, Charlie Schumm, nominated for Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ award, results of which follow later this month.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Intelect on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2020 with a Pass: “The British Safety Council commends Intelect 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.
“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through work – anywhere in the world. Realising it requires more than legislation; people committed to health and safety, and increasingly also to workplace wellbeing, make it a reality and inspire others to create workplaces that are a key force for good.
“The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that an increasing number of companies recognise that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks is a business enabler, benefiting employees, organisations and society as a whole. By celebrating the achievements of the 509 winners of the 2020 International Safety Awards and 62 years of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
“Our warmest congratulations to Intelect. All of those working at Intelect should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
