Ashridge has been awarded a tenth consecutive British Safety Council International Safety Award. The British Safety Council is one of the world’s leading advocates of workplace health and safety and is supported by the Health and Safety Executive. This award acknowledges the commitment that winners have made to improving corporate health and safety and rewards the success of achieving high safety standards.
With over 600 applications from across the world, the win is a true testament to Ashridge’s dedication to the health and safety of its workforce. The International Safety Awards are open to all industries and sectors from across the globe and are independently adjudicated. They are seen as an excellent motivator for businesses looking to attain high standards in workplace health and safety.
The International Safety Awards are judged by an independent panel of experts who look for hard evidence of how an organisation maintains acceptable standards of health and safety on the ground.
Our excellent safety record has been officially recognised once again, this time with the award of the prestigious RoSPA President's Award for Occupational Health and Safety for 2012. This award is presented to those organisations who have achieved 10 consecutive Gold Awards from RoSPA.
Peter Jones, Managing Director at Ashridge commented, "At Ashridge, we are fully committed to Health & Safety and have a record second to none in the construction sector. This award is testament to our robust Health and Safety Management System and maintaining an Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) lower than the national average. We are delighted to have our sustained efforts recognised by RoSPA."
