Morrison Data Services Receives International Safety Award for Commitment to Keeping People and Workplaces Healthy and Safe

Morrison Data Services, the UK’s leading utility data services provider to the energy and water market, and a part of M Group Services, has been awarded a 2021 International Safety Award (with a Merit) by the British Safety Council.

The award was presented to Morrison Data Services in recognition of its commitment to keeping its people and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2020 calendar year.

Now in their 63rd year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year.

The awards also recognise organisations that have shown commitment to wellbeing and mental  health at work. Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Morrison Data Services on its success: “The British Safety Council applauds Morrison Data Services on its achievement. The award is in recognition of its commitment and hard work to keep its people and workplaces free of injury and ill health.

“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work – anywhere in the world. Achieving this requires more than compliance with legislation; it means people committed not only to health and safety but also more and more to workplace wellbeing and impelling others to follow suit. Our heartfelt congratulations to Morrison Data Services. All of those working at Morrison Data Services should be enormously proud of their achievement.”

Steve Quinlan, Head of Health and Safety at Morrison Data Services, commented: “Putting the health, safety and wellbeing of our people first is our number one priority and the core of our business. We are delighted to receive this recognition from the British Safety Council.”
