Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council, congratulated Ricardo Rail on their success in winning an International Safety Award

"The British Safety Council applauds Ricardo Rail on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and hard work to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health."

Mike Robinson continued, "The vision of British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work – anywhere in the world. Achieving this requires more than complying with legislation; it means people committed not only to health and safety but also more and more to workplace wellbeing and impelling others to follow suit. The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that a significant number of companies recognise that effective management of health and safety risks is a business growth enabler, benefiting not just employees, but organisations and wider society.

Billy Underwood, Ricardo’s Global HSEQ Project Lead summed up saying:

“I am immensely proud of our team efforts and achievements over such a challenging period. This external expert recognition is great validation that we are on the right track”
