Treatment and recovery of waste

CNIM has won a prestigious Sword of Honour from the British Safety Council

The company, CNIM Environment & Energy EPC, the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for Masdar Bee’ah waste-to-energy plant located in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, was one of few organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour, which is awarded to companies which have demonstrated excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work. 

 In order to compete for the Sword of Honour an organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme in the period August 2019 – November 2020. It has also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that it has achieved excellence in their health and safety management throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom.

Lawrence Waterman, Chairman of the British Safety Council, said: “On behalf of the board of trustees and staff of the British Safety Council I would like to congratulate CNIM Environment & Energy EPC on achieving the topmost standards of health, safety and environmental management.  Accomplishing such distinction takes real commitment and professionalism. We are delighted to have supported you in your achievements in what has been an unprecedented year given the COVID pandemic.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, added: “I would like to congratulate the winning organisation and its staff for their steadfast dedication to keeping their workplace safe and healthy. This year presented an additional and significant challenge in the form of COVID-19 and I pay tribute to CNIM Environment & Energy EPC for its hard work and commitment through these challenging circumstances."

"All of the Sword winning organisations share a commitment and resolve to achieve the uppermost standards of health, safety management. We are delighted that they are partners in helping achieve our vision that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work.”
