GOSHA Health & Safety Awards
Coppolo and Coyde representatives were delighted to attend the GOSHA (the Guernsey Occupational Safety and Health Association) annual awards dinner held on the 24th January 2013 at the Old Government House Hotel.
As a sponsor of the GOSHA Health & Safety Week Coppolo & Coyde were pleased to support businesses and individuals who were being recognised for their commitment to Health and Safety.
GOSHA chairman Andrew Mills said: "We are delighted with the number, variety and quality of this year's entrants from large organisations to individuals, all of whom have improved safety standards."
"Increasing numbers at GOSHA's annual awards evening with over 100 guests reflect how year on year the Association continues to grow in stature since its inception in 2004."
The awards and commendations were assessed by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) Council member and former chair of the Thames Valley Branch, Mr Roy Featherstone, and presented by Guernsey's Commerce and Employment Minister, Deputy Kevin Stewart.
Managing Director of event sponsor Insurance Corporation Glyn Smith said: "As insurers we are there to help when things go wrong, but of course no-one wants to have to make a claim. It is great to see the efforts that are being made to protect people from unnecessary dangers in such a variety of industries and we applaud those who are promoting better standards of health and safety in the workplace."
Guernsey Water's Director of Water Services Andrew Redhead added: "It is important that people recognise the importance and cost benefit of a safe and health workforce and Guernsey Water is delighted to receive this award, which is a credit to our dedicated safety team and all Guernsey Water employees."
