Health & Safety

Best practice Health and Safety is paramount to Obelisk. It is the vanguard of all our business activity, as is evident in Obelisk’s health and safety accolades namely the National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) which we have been receiving awards in for the past eight years. These awards draw in over 2000 applications from a range of industries so we are thrilled to be this highly recognised.

Yet another successful year for Obelisk at both the NISO and RoSPA Awards.

Building on the successes of previous years, Obelisk retained its Gold Award at the UK’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents awards and achieved the Construction Utility Services Award at the National Irish Safety Organisation’s annual ceremony.

The NISO award is the highest award achieved to date by Obelisk.  It is built on the efforts of previous years and shows Obelisk’s commitment to continuous improvement in the areas of Occupational Safety Health and Environment.

 

The successes are due in no small part to the commitment and ‘buy-in’ to our safety culture by every employee from Board level down.  Obelisk continues to push for excellence in this area and will strive to maintain the highest of standards for next year’s awards.

In March 2012 Obelisk recieved accrediation from Achilles, this was renewed in years since. Achilles works to identify, qualify, evaluate, and monitor suppliers on behalf of major organisations worldwide. Achilles builds and supports buyer-supplier communities in many industry sectors, creating unique and powerful global networks.  Their services for sustainable procurement help create opportunities for business and reduce risk in the supply chain.
