Interserve Press Office | Mar 31, 2016
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded five stars by the British Safety Council for its industrial services work following a recent audit.
This makes Interserve 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 percent. It is the third year in a row Interserve has been awarded five stars by the British Safety Council.
The internationally recognised 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 world-wide 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. This results in an overall numerical score of one to five representing the effectiveness of the organisation’s health and safety programs. In 2015 the audit increased its focus on safety culture, leadership and management of contractors.
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.”
