Each application is judged against set criteria, and also against the other applications received for that sector, before an overall winner for each sector is selected.  In February we were delighted to be one of just 56 organisations (9%) to be awarded a Distinction in the International Safety Awards in recognition of our firm commitment to keeping our workers and workplaces healthy and safe during 2018. To be shortlisted for overall sector winner is outstanding, and a true testament to our team.
