“The British Safety Council commends the AFI group of companies 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. Our warmest congratulations to the AFI group of companies. All of those working at AFI should be rightly proud of their achievement. 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. We encourage other organisations to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
