Leading gas engine specialist, Clarke Energy Ltd has had the high safety record of its Jenbacher CHP gas engines officially recognised, with a prestigious award from the British Safety Council. Representatives from the Knowsley-based company joined over 1,000 guests at the National Safety Awards ceremony in London. Health and Safety Manager, John Grimshaw said, “This award shows the commitment of the company from the Board of Directors to the operatives on site, working for a safer environment.”
The awards are granted to companies which have a below average accident rate, good safety policies and a commitment to health and safety. Contenders had to detail their health and safety officers’ qualifications and provide details of two significant advances in health and safety for the year, plus notification of any impending health and safety legal action.
In a message to winners, Prime Minister Tony Blair has written: “I have great pleasure in sending my best wishes to all the winners. By bestowing these awards annually, the British Safety Council highlights the importance of safety in the workplace.
