Unipart Group, one of Europe’s leading manufacturing, logistics and consultancy companies, is best in class in this year’s British Safety Council Sword and Globe of Honour awards.

The company achieved 10 Swords of Honour awards, which is the highest number for any company of what is the pinnacle of achievement in the world of health and safety management.

Unipart also received five Globes of Honour showing a deep commitment to excellent environmental management standards. This award is a globally recognised accolade and only 18 other sites in the world managed to achieve this.

Unipart credits its success to The Unipart Way, the company’s proprietary business system for continuous improvement that is used by Unipart sites worldwide. The Unipart Way is a major contributor to the company’s safety record as well as increases in productivity.

Unipart Chairman and Group Chief Executive, John Neill CBE, said: “Receiving this global recognition is a testimony to how The Unipart Way is used to inspire our people to continuously improve in these important areas of our business. It also demonstrates our commitment to achieving and delivering world-class standards for our colleagues and our customers.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “I would like to congratulate Unipart Group for their huge commitment to keeping their workplaces safe and healthy and minimising risks to the environment from their organisations’ day-to-day activities.”
