“We applaud your hard work, dedication, and commitment and these awards remind us that health and safety is not just the responsibility of those at the top, but one that requires everyone to take responsibility for their own health, safety and wellbeing.”
Gina Ridsdale Head of Health, Safety and Wellbeing for Britcon (UK) Ltd said "We are delighted not only to win one award but three. Its a real credit to the vision of the business after the new Managing Director (Nick Shepherd) and the senior leadership team (including myself) replaced the previous management team in 2019. We remain focussed in delivering high standards, but in the same instance never become complacent in what we do."
Nick Shepherd, Managing Director added "This is a proud moment for the team I work with, we have come a long way since joining the business. To be recognised in both sector and internationally is incredible for a business of our size."
