Safety Award


This is a Perspex (acrylic) plaque awarded to BAE Systems EI&S in 2008 by The British Safety Council.The quality of the plaque is no longer ceramic but a high grade acrylic.

Each year the British Safety Council invites its members and other organisations around the world to apply for an International Safety Award for their site/business unit. The award recognises commitment to good workplace health and safety management. More than 500 entries are received each year and are adjudicated by an independent panel of chartered health and safety professionals.

The unique wall plaque features the International Safety Award logo and is designed to be used indoors or outdoors. The classic design of this 35.5cm plaque reflects the impressive achievement of gaining an International Safety Award. All organisations havethe opportunity to display the name of the winning site on their plaque.

The International Safety Awards are open to businesses all over the world who care about occupational health, safety and wellbeing. To be eligible, a senior person at that site must confirm that in the previous year, the site or business unit has not:

·         suffered any fatalities

·         been subject to any prohibition notices

·         been the subject of any convictions in relation to health and safety

·         had any ongoing criminal investigations or prosecutions pending in relation to this site/business unit.

The British Safety Council was formed in 1957 by James Tye. A company such as BAE Systems must take safety very seriously and the receipt of an award from The British Safety Council is significant.
