Ringway Jacobs celebrating a Five Star grading in the British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit

Ringway Jacobs is pleased to announce it has achieved a Five Star grading from its Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council for the second time. Awarded on 15th October 2020, a detailed, quantified and objective evaluation of their occupational health and safety management system was conducted.

The audit measured the organisations 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.

Mike O’Neill, Managing Director at Ringway Jacobs said, “It is with great pleasure to receive this prestigious recognition from the British Safety Council for our commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety standards to our employees, clients and other stakeholders at Ringway Jacobs. As a Five Star organisation, we are eligible to apply for the 2020 Sword of Honour award, which recognises the ‘best of the best’ in health and safety management - this is definitely something we would like to achieve later on this year!”
