OSI Food Solutions U.K. won a coveted award from the British Safety Council in 2016. The award is usually granted after an evaluation of a company’s environmental risk management techniques. The event is always held at the London’s Draper’s Hall by the British Safety Council. Last year it took place on 25th November. The evaluation period was from August 2015 to July 2016. The coveted award recognized 18 companies around the globe.
Organizations have to go through an audit by the British Council for them to win this award. They also have to score a five star in environmental risk management. An independent panel is always set aside to evaluate the audit. The group of companies applauded by Lynda Armstrong, the Chairman of the British Safety Council. She mentioned that their environmental risk management was top notch and was beyond the Council’s expectation.
