Scottish Engineering Safety Award

Member companies are sent an accident reporting form. This form is used by Scottish Engineering to monitor reportable Health and Safety incidents throughout the industry. Safety awards are given to companies who have a lower incidence rate than the industry average as specified by the Health & Safety Executive. The Safety Award also shows that the organisation has not received a prohibition notice or been found guilty under Health and Safety law.  If you wish more information, please contact David Brown, Health, Safety and Systems Manager.
