British Safety Council announces winners of its 2011 Sword and Globe of Honour

27 October, 2011

59 UK and international companies across a range of sectors including construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, food and drink and health services, have been announced as this year’s British Safety Council Sword and Globe of Honour winners (see winners list below). 

The award schemes are part of the international health and safety charity’s drive to acknowledge and celebrate exemplary health, safety and environmental management in the workplace. Organisations that achieved the maximum five-star rating in the British Safety Council occupational health and safety audit or environmental audit at one or more of their sites were invited to apply.
For the last 32 years, the Sword of Honour has been awarded to organisations that have proved themselves to be at the forefront of health and safety management. A total of 72 companies applied this year and 54 swords will be presented.
Now in its second year, the Globe of Honour looks to reward environmentally responsible organisations which have demonstrated best practice and set exemplary standards in environmental management. Five winners were announced this year.
Aspire Defence Capital Works and United Biscuits are the two organisations that won both awards for 2011. This is especially impressive for Aspire Defence Capitals Works as it was the first time they had applied for either of the awards.
Commenting on their achievement, Aspire Capital Works SHEQ manager Martin Kerlogue said: “I am tremendously proud on behalf of the management team, staff and all the contractors who work with us to have won the Sword of Honour on our first attempt.” Peter Caddock, environmental manager, added: “To have received the Globe of Honour in the first year of applying is a fabulous result, and it’s great to see we have been rewarded for our sustainability efforts. It’s so valuable to have that outside view which has clearly recognised our results and achievements with this prestigious award.”
"I am delighted to see how many companies applied for and won the award,” says the British Safety Council chief executive Alex Botha. “This year's entries reflect a strong commitment and dedication to properly manage health, safety and environmental pressures. I salute the winners on leading the way, helping us achieve our charity’s vision of a healthy, safe and sustainable workplace.”
The winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony at the historic Goldsmiths’ Hall, London on Friday 25th November 2011, with a keynote speech by John Armitt CBE, chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority.
