The International Safety Award is given to organisations who demonstrate good safety policies, a commitment to health and safety at the highest level, and also who endeavour to improve the safety culture within their organisation. They must detail their health and safety officers' qualifications and provide information about significant advances they have made in health and safety for the year.
The prestigious award, praised by Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, was recently presented to Buckingham Group at a ceremony and banquet at London's prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel.
Mr Brian Nimick, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: "For more than 50 years, we have led the way in promoting health, safety and environmental best practice in society. In the 21st century, many organisations worldwide are now making health and safety a top priority. Through achieving an International Safety Award, Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd is helping to make our vision of a safe working environment a reality."
Prime Minister Gordon Brown added his support: "I am delighted to send my congratulations to all of those organisations being presented with an award by the British Safety Council. These awards recognise the crucial success that these organisations and their employees have achieved in their pursuit of excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental matters at an international level".
"We are extremely proud to have been recognised for our ongoing commitment to implementing and maintaining robust health and safety management systems which ensure the safety and well-being of our employees, our suppliers and customers, as well as the public", said Adrian Stammers, Company HSEQ Manager for Buckingham Group.
