A leading authority in high-performance, sustainable facilities, asset and workplace management, EMCOR UK is one of 296 organisations to win a Merit in the International Safety Awards 2023, in recognition of its commitment to keeping its workers and workplaces healthy and safe in 2022. 

Now in their 65th year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year. The awards also acknowledge organisations that have shown commitment to wellbeing and mental health at work. 

Jonathan Gawthrop, Executive Director, Wellbeing, Sustainability & Assurance for EMCOR UK, said: “We are very proud to have won an International Safety Awards from the British Safety Council for EMCOR UK. Creating and maintaining work environments where health, safety and wellbeing are a priority supports our purpose is to create a better world at work for our employees and those of our customers. 

“This award – which is for the whole of the EMCOR UK business – reflects the robust health and safety processes and management systems we deploy and is a testament to the hard work of all our employees who strive to keep themselves and everyone safe and well at work.“

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council, congratulated EMCOR UK on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2023 with a Merit: “The British Safety Council applauds EMCOR UK 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.   

“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. By celebrating the achievements of the 774 winners of the 2023 International Safety Awards and over six decades of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to adopt this approach and place employees’ health, safety and wellbeing at the core of their business.

“Our heartfelt congratulations to EMCOR UK. All of those working at EMCOR UK should be enormously proud of their achievement.”
