The UK’s leading independent oil and gas manpower provider is celebrating award success recently after winning a coveted British Safety Council Sword of Honour for outstanding dedication to health and safety.

Recognised as a world leader in providing key staff to the engineering industry, Orion Group is one of only a handful of Scottish based International companies to walk away with an award.  This is the second year running in which Orion Group have scooped the prestigious accolade.

The winning Orion Group team – operating from the company’s Head Office in Inverness - received the Sword of Honour after British Safety Council independent adjudicators recognised the organisation’s exemplary efforts in implementing health and safety management in the workplace together with their health and safety strategy and vision for the future.

“We have set the benchmark for good health and safety practice among our staff and contractors and these are the people who deserve to be celebrated - so a huge thank you to everyone involved.”
