Univar Inc. recently announced it has received a health and safety award at the National Irish Safety Organization’s (NISO) 21st Annual Occupational Safety Awards 2012.

“Univar is committed to operating with integrity, and health and safety is an important part of that, so it is a great pleasure to be recognized by the NISO for our work in this area,” said Phil Hockaday, Univar’s environment, health, safety, and quality director EMEA. “Through our stringent EHS policy, procedures, and philosophy, we work very closely with our staff, customers and suppliers, regulators, and local authorities to make sure we are not just meeting but exceeding government and industry requirements, raising the bar for the industry.”

Univar Ireland submitted details of its safety management systems, water and chemical spill detection and interception, underground catchment tanks, on-site emergency training, a lightning protection system, accident and incident rates, and inspection records, as well as information on other improvements made to its site relating to health and safety. The Univar Ireland facility at Greenogue was opened in 2007 and was reportedly designed to incorporate the highest established safety and operational standards developed across the Univar network.

NISO, established in 1963, is the leading body providing training and advice in the area of workplace health and safety in Ireland. The annual awards held by the non-profit organization are open to all companies and businesses operating in a variety of different industries, including construction, agriculture, and waste management.
