UTL, the part of Unipart Group that provides logistics and value added services to the mobile, media and consumer sectors, is pleased to announce that two of its sites in the West Midlands, Nuneaton and Baginton have maintained their five star grading from its Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council. Both sites underwent a detailed, quantified and objective evaluation of their occupational health and safety management system.
The audit measured performance against a number of key safety management indicators and achieved the highest rating. The British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit provides organisations with a worldwide benchmark of their safety management systems against current best practice to enable continual improvement. The Audit specification was revised in 2013 to include performance measurements in two additional safety management indicators (Leadership and Continuous Improvement) which are continually assessed, alongside other indicators, throughout the audit process.
Within the revised audit, the British Safety Council has placed a greater emphasis on the organisation’s approach to occupational health, employee wellbeing, safety culture, allocation of resources to health and safety and planning for change; all of which are considered important best practice factors.
Andy Pyne, Operations Director at UTL, said: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues at Nuneaton and Baginton for ensuring that health and safety takes the highest of priority. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to maintain and continually improve our standards and ensuring that the safety of our employees is non-negotiable and goes hand in hand with providing a great service to our customers.”
