Community Gateway Association has won a prestigious Sword of Honour from the British Safety Council.
CGA was one of the organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour, which is awarded to companies which have demonstrated excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.
In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, an organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme in the period August 2020 – November 2021. Gateway also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that it has achieved excellence in their health and safety throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom.
Rob Wakefield, Chief Executive of CGA, said:
“At Gateway we put the health and safety of our colleagues and tenants at the heart of everything we do and we are all delighted to receive this award in recognition of our hard work and commitment to achieving health and safety excellence.”
Peter McGettrick, Chairman of the British Safety Council, said:
“On behalf of the board of trustees and staff of the British Safety Council I would like to congratulate Community Gateway Association on achieving the highest standards of health and safety management. Achieving recognition of this sort takes real dedication and absolute professionalism. We are proud to support your organisation in its achievement and delighted we can contribute to your ongoing success.”
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, added:
“I would like to congratulate Community Gateway Association and its staff on their achievement and applaud them for keeping their workplace safe and healthy. I pay tribute to Community Gateway Association for its hard work and commitment.
“All of the Sword winning organisations share a commitment and resolve to achieve the uppermost standards of health and safety. We thank them for contributing to achieving our vision that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work.”
