Sodexo success at International Safety Awards 2013
May 20, 2013
Sodexo Justice Services scooped distinctions for all four of its prisons at the 2013 International Safety Awards, with Sodexo Remote Sites receiving a merit commendation for the 14th consecutive year.
HMP Bronzefield, HMP Addiewell, HMP Forest Bank and HMP Peterborough all earned the top award from the British Safety Council for their commitment to workplace health and safety. Of the 467 sites of all shapes and sizes to enter from across the globe, only 39 achieved a distinction.
Tony Leech, managing director of Sodexo Justice Services said: “I am delighted to see best practice by our teams recognised as being among the best in the world. Through these awards we are able to demonstrate our commitment to safety and security which is critical to the success of our business.”
For Sodexo Remote Sites receiving a merit commendation for the 14th year sets the company apart from its competitors, as no other offshore hotel services provider can boast the same.
John Fraser, Sodexo’s HSE Manager said: “Each and every one of our teams plays their part in working safely at our worksites, looking for the potential cause of the next accident and personally taking accountability to eliminate it. HSE Management is a top priority at Sodexo - it’s in our culture – and it’s a fundamental we share with our clients and customers alike.”
The award recognises competence in terms of health and safety management systems and the winners are chosen from over 500 entries each year after careful adjudication by an independent panel of chartered health and safety professionals. See www.britsafe.org/isa for more details.
