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 507 winners of the 2019 International Safety Awards and 61 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 Plymouth Community Homes, the Repairs and Regeneration department and PCH Manufacturing. All of those working at Plymouth Community Homes, the Repairs and Regeneration department and PCH Manufacturing should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
