• IRELAND: Univar Inc. has been recognized by the National Irish Safety Organization (NISO) with a distinction for high standards of health and safety at the 21st Annual Occupational Safety Awards 2012.

“Univar is committed to operating with integrity, and health and safety is an important part of that, so it is a great pleasure to be recognized by the NISO for our work in this area,” said Phil Hockaday, Univar’s environment, health, safety and quality director, EMEA. “Through our stringent EHS policy, procedures and philosophy, we work very closely with our staff, customers and suppliers, regulators, and local authorities to make sure we are not just meeting, but exceeding government and industry requirements, raising the bar for the industry.”

Univar Ireland submitted details of its safety management systems, water and chemical spill detection and interception, underground catchment tanks, on-site emergency training, a lightning protection system, accident and incident rates and inspection records as well as information on other improvements made to its site relating to health and safety.
