All of those working at VolkerFitzpatrick have made this award possible which recognises their dedication and commitment in preventing injury and ill health in the workplace. It was also apparent that applicants recognise that getting health and safety right is a business enabler.

"The success criteria for our International Safety Awards are challenging and that rightly reflects the importance of ensuring the risks of injury and ill health in the workplace are properly controlled. Awards have an important part to play in driving improvements in health and safety management year on year. VolkerFitzpatrick should be rightly proud of their achievement. We are proud of our association with VolkerFitzpatrick and their commitment to keeping their employees and workplaces healthy and safe. Our congratulations."
