The awards, which demonstrate the positive and proactive culture of safety management in organisations, was hosted at the Galmont Hotel in Galway.

We are working together to build an inclusive approach to health and safety and build on our growing ethos of proactive safety. It’s something we have accomplished together and will contribute to our ongoing commitment to our health and safety performance."
