Stelrad Radiators presented with International Safety Award for protecting its employees from the risk of injury and ill health at work.
Stelrad Radiators has won an International Safety Award with distinction from the British Safety Council in recognition of its commitment to keeping its workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2015 calendar year.
Stelrad Radiators is one of 30 organisations to win a distinction in the 2016 International Safety Awards. It is the only company in the heating and plumbing sector to win a distinction for its efforts.
Now in their 58th year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations of all types and sizes from around the world that 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.
In 2016 436 organisations won an International Safety Award. These winning organisations span all sectors and are drawn from the United Kingdom, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. 30 organisations were awarded a distinction, 241 organisations were awarded a merit and 165 organisations achieved a pass.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Stelrad on its success in winning an International Safety Award with distinction for 2016: “The British Safety Council commends Stelrad on its achievement. The award is in recognition of its commitment and effort to keep its employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health. Our warmest congratulations.
“The British Safety Council’s vision is that no one should be injured or made ill by work, anywhere in the world. Across all of the winning organisations are examples of dedication and hard work to ensure that the risk of injury and ill health is prevented. We commend the winning organisations and urge them to continue working with us to ensure that our vision becomes a reality.”
Stelrad’s Health and Safety and Environmental Manager David Atkinson said: “This is further excellent recognition of the huge amount of work we put into health and safety on our premises. It also highlights the culture of health and safety we have built in our manufacturing units and logistics areas and shows the value of having everyone in the business pulling in the same direction when it comes to day to day health and safety efforts. It’s an award that can be shared by everyone on site at Mexborough.”
