Nakilat Awarded ‘Sword of Honour’ from British Safety Council for Third Consecutive Year
10 March 2021
Nakilat has been awarded the ‘Sword of Honour’ by British Safety Council for the third consecutive year, a prestigious award for organisations that have reached the pinnacle of excellence in managing the company’s health, safety and environmental risks.
Despite the challenging circumstances brought about by the global pandemic, Nakilat continued to uphold its exemplary commitment and dedication in operating to the highest international standards and effectively manage occupational health, safety, environment, and wellbeing within the organization.
Throughout COVID-19, the company has spared no effort in ensuring a safe workplace to protect its workforce by implementing various measures to prevent the spread the virus and reduce risks to all its employees, contractors and visitors. This was possible due to the robust systems and procedures in place that allowed the company to act swiftly in response to the situation and ensure its global operations remained uninterrupted while keeping its personnel safe.
Nakilat was among a selected number of organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour this year, 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, the organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health, safety and environmental management audit scheme in the period August 2019 – November 2020. Nakilat had also remotely demonstrated to an independent panel of experts its excellence in health, safety and environmental management throughout the business – from the shopfloor to the boardroom.
