Pres­ti­gious health and safety award for prison

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

PETER­BOR­OUGH prison’s op­er­a­tor Ka­lyx has been awarded a pres­ti­gious health and safety award.

Staff from HMP Peter­bor­ough, in Sav­ille Road, joined lead­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions from the in­ter­na­tional world of health and safety to cel­e­brate be­ing awarded the Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil In­ter­na­tional Safety Award.

It was pre­sented at a cer­e­mony at the Grosvenor House Ho­tel, in London.

To achieve the award, Ka­lyx needed to demon­strate that it had com­pre­hen­sive health and safety poli­cies in place, as well as a ded­i­cated com­mit­ment from front­line staff to board­room ex­ec­u­tives, to en­sure a posi- tive safety cul­ture.

In ad­di­tion, the prison was as­sessed on its abil­ity to pro­vide work­ers with the nec­es­sary skills and com­pe­tence to en­sure risks to health and safety were suit­ably man­aged.

Ka­lyx man­ages the whole prison, tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for ser­vices such as food and fa­cil­i­ties man­age­ment, to cus­tody and of­fend­ing be­hav­iour pro­grammes.

RECOG­NI­TION: HMP Peter­bor­ough.
