For the third year in a row, Interserve has been awarded five stars by the British Safety Council for its industrial services work.
This makes the international support services and construction group the only company in the industrial market to have achieved a five star rating across its entire suite of industrial services, with an overall score of 99.24 per cent.
The British Safety Council Five Star Audit is a comprehensive, independent and quantified evaluation of an organisation’s entire health and safety management system. It is used by companies across the globe to benchmark their systems against health and safety best practice.
The audit measures performance against key safety management indicators, identifies areas of best practice and areas for improvement, and provides a structured approach to continuous improvement. In 2015 the audit increased its focus on safety culture, leadership and management of contractors.
Commenting on the five star award, Guy Bruce, managing director, infrastructure and industrial at Interserve said:
“Providing safe environments for our people and visitors across all of our sites is the number one priority for Interserve. To achieve the five star rating for the third consecutive year is a huge achievement. This once again demonstrates Interserve’s commitment to having a strong and robust safety management system at the heart of our business, and is testament to our ongoing dedication to building and enhancing our safety culture.”
