National Express West Midlands (NXWM) is celebrating continued recognition for its relentless commitment to safety after receiving its seventh consecutive five-star occupational health & safety audit from the British Safety Council.
Each year, organisations from across the world put themselves forward for a demanding, independent health and safety audit by an external assessor. The extensive evaluation goes beyond the legal minimum requirements and judges companies against best practice in safety culture, leadership, well-being and continuous improvement. Following this year’s intensive audit, NXWM has been given a score of 98.61%, which is an increase on its 97.86% score in 2021.
Mike Robinson, CEO of the British Safety Council, said: “The award of a five-star grading following our occupational best practice health & safety audit is an outstanding achievement. It is reflective of a proactive organisation which is committed to continual improvement in its health and safety arrangements and managing risks to workers’ health, safety and well-being. National Express West Midlands should be very proud of this achievement.”
NXWM was also granted continued ISO45001:2018 certification, an international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system.
