Triumph At International Safety Awards

For the fifth year running Training 2000 has received an International Safety Award with merit showing it has maintained excellent standards of health and safety in the workplace.

The awards, organised by the British Safety Council (BSC), recognise businesses with a commitment to health, safety and the well-being of staff and learners and are presented to companies that demonstrate a commitment to preventing workplace injuries and ill-health.

The long-established awards scheme, now in its 56th year, has recognised more than 500 organisations this year.

Commenting on this success, Phil Watson, head of health and safety at Training 2000, said: “We work very hard to ensure the workplace is a safe environment for staff and learners so we are very pleased that our efforts have been recognised for a fifth consecutive year. We take health and safety very seriously and make sure all individuals know the regulations and protocols that are in place to keep them safe.

“With a workforce of just under 300 staff, it is extremely important that we put a huge amount of time and effort into maintaining standards. We also ensure that staff and learners have thorough training on safety regulations and codes of practice which we review on a regular basis.

“We plan to maintain our current commitment to health and safety and hopefully will achieve this award for the sixth year running in 2015.”

Alex Botha, chief executive of the BSC, said: “On behalf of the Trustees and staff at the British Safety Council we would like to congratulate Training 2000 and its employees on gaining an International Safety Award with merit.

“The success criteria for our International Safety Awards is challenging and that rightly reflects the importance of ensuring the risks of injury and ill health in the workplace are properly controlled. We are proud of our association with Training 2000 and their commitment to keeping their employees, learners and workplaces healthy and safe.” 07 August 2014
