For the second year running Blackpool-based Training 2000 has received an International Safety Award with distinction, showing it has maintained its excellent standards of health and safety in the workplace.

The awards, organised by the British Safety Council, recognise businesses with a commitment to health, safety and the well-being of staff and learners and more than 500 organisations from the public, private and third sectors enter each year.

Mike Sagar, Training 2000 functional leader, health, safety and the environment, said: “We are so pleased to have won this award at distinction level for the second year running.

“We work very hard to make sure the workplace is a safe environment for staff and learners so we are over the moon that our efforts have been recognised. We take health and safety very seriously and make sure all individuals know the regulations and protocol in place to keep safe.

“With a workforce of just under 300 staff, it is extremely important that we put a huge amount of time and effort into maintaining standards.

“We also ensure that staff operating any of our machinery have strict and thorough training with safety regulations and codes of practice reviewed on a regular basis.”

Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, said: “All of those working at Training 2000 have made this award possible which recognises their dedication and commitment to preventing injury and ill-health.”
