BPD Nets International Award

Care of staff from shopfloor to boardroom has been recognised at a Nottinghamshire manufacturing facility with the attainment of an international award.

The Award is the successful result of rigorous assessment by the BSC, one of the world's leading health & safety training, advisory and audit bodies, involving BPD's policies, targeted plans across all operating levels, significant advances in health and safety over the past year, and promotion of a positive safety culture: BPD has seen its statistics for health and safety incidents more than halve in the past three years as a result of its improved H&S culture. Brian Nimick, chief executive of the British Safety Council observed, "For more than 50 years BSC has led the way in promoting health, safety and environmental best practice in society. Through achieving an International Safety Award, Building Product Design is helping make our vision of a healthy and safe working environment a reality."
