BICESTER print firm BGP says it has become the first in the country to achieve full marks in a national standard for health and safety.

The Launton Road firm has achieved 100 per cent in the British Print Industries Federation (BPIF) Seal of Excellence certification.

Launched by BPIF earlier this year, the certification is designed to help printers show customers how they are performing in key areas.

BGP health and safety manager Neil Ironmonger said senior management had been extremely supportive.

He added: “It’s also a great acknowledge to the staff, who have also played a major part in helping BGP to attain the award.

“Together with their continued support, and the support of both chairman David Holland and the board, we can now work together towards achieving zero incidents at BGP.”

The company undertook a Seal of Excellence audit in October this year, having previously attained a 93 per cent score in the Seal of Excellence Awards health and safety category earlier in the year.

The comprehensive audit includes control of machinery hazards, slips and trips, workplace transport, working at height and fire risk.
