Safety award winner

15 March 2019

Hughes Safety Showers is one of 203 organisations to receive a 'Pass' in the 2019 International Safety Awards in recognition of its commitment to keeping workers and workplaces healthy and safe during 2018.

Now in their 61st year, the Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which 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 2019, 507 organisations won an International Safety Award. They span all sectors and are drawn from the United Kingdom, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. A total of 56 organisations were awarded a Distinction, 248 organisations were awarded a Merit and 203 organisations achieved a Pass.

Mike Robinson, CE of the British Safety Council, congratulated Hughes Safety Showers on its success in winning an International Safety Award 2019 with a Pass: “The British Safety Council commends Hughes on its achievement. The award is in recognition of its 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 Hughes Safety Showers. All of those working at Hughes should be rightly proud of their achievement.”
