Grundon Waste Management Ltd has been awarded the 2011 CIWM Environmental Excellence Award for Health & Safety Best Practice. Presented at the awards ceremony in London last week the award was made in recognition of a two-year Health & Safety improvement programme to change the culture at every level within the organisation.
A wide range of companies, public sector organisations and individuals were recognised at the Awards. The winners were announced at the Marriott London Grosvenor Square hotel, at a ceremony hosted by Alistair McGowan, who praised the waste sector for the work it does in reducing society's environmental impact and raising awareness.
Steve Roscoe, Grundon Technical Director said: “We are delighted to win the award for Health and Safety Best Practice. Improving our health and safety culture has required commitment and a huge effort by the Compliance Team. However, the commitment from our managers and staff at operational level has been instrumental in the reduction in the number of accidents and injuries. We continue to pursue higher standards across the business and many challenges remain, but the award is a very welcome recognition of our achievements to date.”
