Guernsey Occupational Safety & Health Association

Guernsey businesses and individuals were recognised for their efforts to improve health and safety standards at our annual awards dinner held on the 24th January 2013 at the Old Government House Hotel.

We were delighted with the number, variety and quality of this year’s entrants from large organisations to individuals, all of whom have made significant contributions to workplace safety standards.

Over 100 guests attended our annual dinner to see the presentation of awards by Deputy Kevin Stewart, Minister, Commerce and Employment.

The awards and commendations were assessed by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Council member and former chair of the Thames Valley Branch, Mr Roy Featherstone and we are grateful to Roy for the time he gives free of charge to undertake the judging and for his independent, experienced judgement.

Managing Director of event sponsor Insurance Corporation Glyn Smith said: “As insurers we are there to help when things go wrong, but of course no-one wants to have to make a claim. It is great to see the efforts that are being made to protect people from unnecessary dangers in such a variety of industries and we applaud those who are promoting better standards of health and safety in the workplace.”
