The winners of the BSIF Safety Awards 2012 have been revealed at this year’s Safety & Health Expo at the NEC, Birmingham. As in previous years, there were three award categories: The BSIF Service Awards, The BSIF Safety Excellence Awards and The Product Innovation Awards.
David Lummis, Chief Executive Officer at the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) commented: “Every year, the BSIF is proud to host these highly sought after awards. This year the Product Innovation Award category received so many outstanding entries that competition was fierce and it made choosing an overall winner a very difficult process.
“We would like to congratulate the winners who illustrated a continuous commitment to improving the safety industry whether in the creative design of a product, the introduction of a scheme or initiative or the service provided by a supplier, manufacturer or distributor to their customers.
“The BSIF Safety Awards continue to underline the Federation’s dedication to the highest standards within the supply of occupational health and safety products and services”.
