SES has been awarded a Merit this year. The award is in recognition of SES’ commitment to keeping their workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2020 calendar year. SES is one of only 155 organisations to win a Merit in the International Safety Awards 2021.
Now in their 63rd year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year. The awards also recognise organisations that have shown commitment to wellbeing and mental health at work.
Steve Joyce, SES’ Managing Director commented:
“This is a clear demonstration of the high levels of safety professionalism within the SES business. A great effort from our sites and employees, to achieve this level of recognition and on-site safety management. Thank you to everyone for maintaining these high standards!”
This year, 387 organisations won an International Safety Award. They span all sectors with significant representation from the construction, manufacturing, oil, gas and mining, and power and utility sectors. Winners were drawn from 37 countries worldwide.
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated SES on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2021 with a Merit:
“The British Safety Council applauds SES on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and hard work to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work – anywhere in the world. Achieving this requires more than complying with legislation; it means people committed not only to health and safety but also more and more to workplace wellbeing and impelling others to follow suit.
“The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that a significant number of companies recognise that effective management of health and safety risks is a business growth enabler, benefiting not just employees, but organisations and wider society. By celebrating the achievements of the 387 winners of the 2021 International Safety Awards and over six decades of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to adopt this approach and place employees’ health, safety and wellbeing at the core of their business.
“Our heartfelt congratulations to SES. All of those working at SES should be enormously proud of their achievement.”
