The National Irish Safety Organisation Awards took place in Galway on Friday 2nd October 2015 with it being Cork City Council’s third entry into the NISO Awards. Achieving an award demonstrates the positive and proactive culture of safety management in Cork City Council and is testament to our intentions of striving to improve our practices, policies and safe systems of work. By compiling a submission to the awards it places our Health & Safety Management System under the scrutiny of an independent body and in turn Cork City Council gained an external review of the efforts we have invested into improving our Health & Safety culture and performance.
This award is a shared achievement between management and staff, both indoor and outdoor staff and Cork City Council would like to acknowledge the personal commitment being made by staff in our journey towards continually improving the standard of health and safety.
The All Ireland Safety Awards are jointly organized by the National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) and the Northern Ireland Safety Group (NISG) resulting in an average entry level of 1300 submissions by organisations in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK, across sectors such as energy, construction, manufacturing & transport.
The award, pictured above, was presented to Cork City Council by Pauric Corrigan, NISO president and Martin O’Halloran, HSA CEO.
