The winners of International Safety Awards 2019 are announced

12 February 2019

The British Safety Council has revealed the winners of its prestigious 2019 International Safety Awards, which recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have shown a true dedication to keeping their workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2018 calendar year.

This year, 507 organisations of all sizes and sectors won an International Safety Award, including businesses from the UK, Africa, Asia, India, mainland Europe and the Middle East. 56 organisations were awarded a distinction, 248 were awarded a merit and 203 organisations achieved a pass.

The full list of winners is here.

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work – anywhere in the world. This requires more than legislation but people committed to health and safety, and increasingly also to workplace wellbeing. It is these people who 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 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 all the winners. They should be truly proud of their achievement.”
