BSC chief executive Mike Robinson congratulated the winners and their staff for “their huge commitment to keeping their workplaces safe and healthy and minimising risks to the environment from their organisations’ day-to-day activities”.

“The awards process and the final ceremony are an excellent opportunity to celebrate their success and encourage other organisations everywhere to follow their lead, further strengthening the case for good health and safety at work.”
