For the second, successive year, our Distribution Centre has been awarded an International Safety Award with Merit from the British Safety Council, underlining our commitment to health and safety in the workplace.
Following on from our first award win in 2019, we’re proud to receive the prestigious International Safety Award with Merit for a second, consecutive time. The British Safety Council recognise businesses and organisations not just in the UK but right around the world, celebrating their commitment to health and safety.
The International Safety Awards have now been running for 62 years and VictoriaPlum.com join an exclusive group of just 250 organisations and businesses who won an award with merit in 2020.
Comment from the British Safety Council
Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated the VictoriaPlum.com Distribution Centre on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2020 with Merit: “The British Safety Council commends the VictoriaPlum.com Distribution Centre on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and efforts to keep their employees 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 work – anywhere in the world. Realising it requires more than legislation; people committed to health and safety, and increasingly also to workplace wellbeing, make it a reality and inspire others to create workplaces that are a key force for good.”
“The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that an increasing number of companies recognise that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks is a business enabler, benefiting employees, organisations and society as a whole. By celebrating the achievements of the 509 winners of the 2020 International Safety Awards and 62 years of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
“Our warmest congratulations to the VictoriaPlum.com Distribution Centre. All of those working at VictoriaPlum.com should be rightly proud of their achievement.”

Excellent continued effort and progression made by the Distribution Centre and the whole business throughout the year, has led to further recognition of our attitude and culture towards embracing safety behaviours, accident prevention and “wellbeing” promotion amongst ourselves.”
