ByBox sword of honourInternational technology company, ByBox, has won a prestigious Sword of Honour from the British Safety Council for a second consecutive year. This accolade was re-awarded to the ByBox Coventry Distribution Hub in recognition of the very high standard of health and safety measures it has successfully implemented and maintained.

The ByBox Coventry Distribution Hub was one of 64 organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour this year, 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 2015 – July 2016. They have also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that they are excellent in their health and safety management throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom.

Roger Ward, Director of SHEQ at ByBox said, “The Sword of Honour is a worldwide achievement and to have won the award for the second year in a row brings a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Best practise in health and safety has, and always will be a huge focus for ByBox, and this recognition is testament to the effort that all of our employees put into maintaining such high levels of health and safety at work.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “On behalf of the trustees and staff of the British Safety Council, I would like to congratulate those winning organisations and their staff for their huge commitment to keeping their workplaces safe and healthy and minimising risks to the environment from their organisations’ day-to-day activities.

“All of the Sword and Globe winning organisations share a commitment and resolve to achieving the highest standards of health and safety management. We are delighted that they are partners in helping achieve our vision that no one should be injured or made ill at work.”
