Solid health and safety commitment

12 July 2019

Four major health and safety commendations in as many months are testament to Briggs Defence's ongoing commitment to the health, safety and well-being of its employees.

As well as winning an International Safety Award and a RoSPA Silver Award the specialist division of asset management and engineering services provider Briggs Equipment was a finalist in the 2019 Safety & Health Excellence Awards. In addition, Briggs Defence's occupational health and safety management system has achieved the ISO45001:2018 standard.

Briggs Defence is one of 248 organisations to win a Merit in the 2019 International Safety Awards. Presented by the British Safety Council, the accolades celebrate organisations from around the world that have satisfied the scheme's independent judging panel of their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year.

A commitment to making safety a priority has also resulted in a RoSPA Silver Award.

Gary Clements of Briggs Defence said: "We wholeheartedly endorse the British Safety Council's philosophy that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks benefits employees, organisations and society as a whole. That's why we put health and safety at the heart of our business. We're very proud of our dedicated health and safety team whose work has led to increased staff participation and, by improving the reputation of health and safety in the workplace, has produced outstanding results."
