Now in their 64th 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 acknowledge organisations that have shown commitment to wellbeing and mental health at work.
In 2022, 549 organisations won an International Safety Award – spanning all sectors with significant representation from the construction, manufacturing, oil, gas, mining, power and utility sectors. Winners were drawn from 39 countries worldwide. 135 organisations were awarded a Distinction, 204 organisations were awarded a Merit – including Lyndon SGB – and 210 organisations achieved a Pass.
Lyndon SGB SHEQ Director, Mark Collinson said: “We have had a long history of winning these coveted awards from the British Safety Council stretching back three decades. This is testament to the incredibly high safety standards we set ourselves here at Lyndon SGB, year in, year out, on every scaffolding, access, hoist and Mastclimbers™ project we offer our clients nationwide. And we must also credit the hard work of our mental health team, Ian Hines and Matt Harthill, who’s work during the pandemic to provide vital support and training has been exceptional in boosting mental health and with it, on and off-site safety.”
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council, congratulated Lyndon SGB on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2022 with a Merit: “The British Safety Council applauds Lyndon SGB 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 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.
“Our heartfelt congratulations to Lyndon SGB. All of those working at Lyndon SGB should be enormously proud of their achievement.”
