Glasgow Airport has won a prestigious Sword of Honour from the British Safety Council for the third time.
The airport was one of only 84 organizations worldwide to achieve a Sword of Honour, which is awarded to companies that have demonstrated excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.
In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, organizations had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme in the period August 2018-July 2019.
Each organization also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that it had achieved excellence in health and safety management across the business. Glasgow Airport also won the Sword of Honour in 2013 and 2017.
Graeme Robertson, Glasgow Airport’s health and safety manager, said, “We are extremely proud to receive what is now our third Sword of Honour as the management of the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers is absolutely critical to our operations here at Glasgow Airport.
“We are honored that our efforts have been recognized once again by the British Safety Council in the form of this prestigious award. This year is even more special for us as we were joined by our sister airport at Aberdeen, which was also successful in gaining the Sword of Honour.”
This recognition comes on the back of the airport being awarded the Glasgow Business Award for Healthy and Active Workplace at the Glasgow Business Awards 2019 ceremony in October.
