British Safety Council launches safety and environment awards
The British Safety Council has launched this year’s Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour awards, designed to recognise and celebrate health and safety and environmental management excellence.
The 2013 awards mark the 34th year of the Sword of Honour, awarded for health and safety management excellence, and the 4th year of the Globe of Honour awarded for environmental management excellence.
The awards are open to organisations from around the world who have achieved the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s audit programme in the period August 2012 – July 2013. Entrants must be able to demonstrate to an independent adjudication panel that a culture of best practice for health and safety and/or environmental management permeates their entire business.
The awards ceremony will take place during a celebratory lunch at the historic Goldsmiths’ Hall in the City of London on Friday 29 November. Judith Hackitt CBE, Chair, Health and Safety Executive (HSE), will be the keynote speaker at the awards luncheon.
