University of Northampton awarded International Safety Award with Merit from British Safety Council

Date 12.11.2015

Every year, the BSC runs award schemes which allow organisations to benchmark their performance in health, safety and environmental management. The International Safety Management Awards require organisations to demonstrate they have sound health and safety management systems in place, and assessment covers 12 areas including emergency planning, health hazards and objective setting.

The University has been awarded an International Safety Award with Merit (with a score of 53 out of 60).  This was the University’s first attempt at such a prestigious award, and is a terrific achievement and testament to how the University currently manages health and safety.The award provides a great benchmark from which we will be able to further develop and strengthen the management of health and safety within the University.”
