Now in their 57th year, the International Safety Awards seek to celebrate and promote the success of the winning organisations and their employees in maintaining a safe and healthy working environment for all. They are open to businesses and organisations of all sizes and industry sectors. The 2015 award winners have demonstrated their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health to the satisfaction of the scheme's independent judges.

"Chubb recognises the value that proportionate and sensible management of occupational health and safety risks brings to the organisation, its people and society," said Neal Stone, acting chief executive, British Safety Council. "The International Labour Organisation estimates that 2.3 million people globally die every year from work-related accidents and diseases, and that an estimated 4 percent of global GDP is lost due to health and safety failure. Awards have an important role to play in shining a light on those employers who are taking sensible and effective steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their workers. The International Safety Awards rightly reflect the importance of aiming for good standards of health and safety at work. Chubb should rightly be proud of its achievement."

"To be recognised for this award places great emphasis on the lengths that we as a company go to in ensuring our staff are given a safe environment to work efficiently and effectively," said Mark Redding, senior EH&S manager, Chubb Fire & Security.

More than 500 organisations won a 2015 International Safety Award with winning organisations spanning all sectors, including the United Kingdom, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the West Indies.

About the International Safety Awards

The International Safety Awards is an annual scheme designed to recognise and reward good health and safety management by organisations of all sizes and sectors around the world during the previous calendar year.

Organisations answer a series of online questions about their management of occupational health and safety risks at a specific site or business unit which are marked by independent adjudicators. If the application meets the required standard, a pass, merit or – for really exceptional submissions – a distinction is awarded.
