It’s a sobering statistic, but nationwide 56 people died from injuries in the workplace last year. The National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) works to help organisations reduce the number of fatalities and injuries by offering education, training and helping to promote a culture of excellence in workplace health and safety. Companies can play a positive role in adopting a proactive approach to health and safety, and each year the NISO/NISG All Ireland Safety Awards recognises excellence in health and safety practices.
We were delighted that Musgrave Wholesale Partners won the ‘Retail/Wholesale’ category at this year’s awards held on 2 October 2015 in Galway. Musgrave Wholesale Partners demonstrated a proactive culture of safety management and Catherine Lambe, Human Resources Director collected the award with Mark Dunne, Health and Safety Manager Wholesale Partners.
The awards were co-presented by Martin O’Halloran, CEO, Health and Safety Authority (HSA); Keith Morrison, CEO, Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI); Pauric Corrigan, President, National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO); Jimmy Fenton, Chairperson, Northern Ireland Safety Group (NISG) and Dermot Carey, Head of Safety Services, Construction Industry Federation (CIF).
