 The reasons the panel made this Award are the following:

  • clear demonstration of leadership
  • reduction in accidents and lost days
  • simple use of intranet to link a safety improvement scheme to operations
  • good communication across their company
  • involvement of staff so that their culture could be understood to help drive towards the commitment to "Zero"
  • the Committee feels this model could easily be used by others
