Praise from PM as Dounreay wins top safety awards

9th December 2011 from John O Groat Journal

PRIME Minister David Cameron has praised workers at Dounreay for going beyond the call of duty to protect themselves and the environment from harm.
He was speaking as the company responsible for demolishing the redundant nuclear site emerged as one of only three in the UK to qualify for the country’s highest awards for workplace safety and environmental protection – the Sword of Honour and the Globe of Honour.
The British Safety Council said an independent audit of Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd found “exemplary health and safety systems that are among the best in the world”.
A second assessment of its environmental standards found that DSRL “goes beyond compliance and strives for best practice in all areas of environmental management”.
The company, a contractor to the UK Government’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, received the council’s highest awards at an event in London.
Mr Cameron said: “These awards recognise the crucial success that these organisations and their employees have achieved in their pursuit of excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental matters at an international level at a time of global challenge.
“This event provides an opportunity to publicly recognise the important contribution made by the British Safety Council in promoting health, safety and environmental best practice.”
