“I am delighted by the range of organisations who have won and by the different regions of the world they represent. The Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour awards shine a light on organisations that are at the forefront of achieving safe, healthy and sustainable workplace and business practices. It is an opportunity to celebrate their success and encourage other organisations everywhere to follow their lead as we know the business case for good health and safety is strong.

“The more we can do to promote these awards and the winners and learn from them, the more we can protect both workers and the environment, which benefits business overall.”
