The British Safety Council presented an International Safety Award with merit to Lovell’s Kenilworth Road development in East Kilbride which was built on behalf of Clyde Valley Housing Association, creating 34 new homes. Lovell’s development of 16 new homes for North Lanarkshire Council at Afton Road in Kildrum, Cumbernauld, was also presented with a merit award.
Now in their 60th year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year.
Commenting on the awards, Stephen Profili, managing director of Lovell in Scotland said: “At Lovell, ensuring the safety of our teams and the public is our top priority. These awards presented to our Kenilworth Road and Afton Road developments by the British Safety Council are testament to this and we congratulate both teams on their well-deserved successes.
“Lovell in Scotland has received a number of International Safety Awards in previous years so we are pleased to have repeated this achievement in 2018. We look forward to continuing these high standards in years to come.”
Mike Robinson, chief executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The British Safety Council commends Lovell on its achievement. The awards are in recognition of its commitment and efforts to keep its employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.
“By celebrating and sharing the achievements of the winners of the International Safety Awards, we encourage businesses all over the world to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
