Amey has been awarded both the esteemed 'Sword of Honour' award for Safety Excellence, as well as the ‘Globe of Honour’ award, for Environmental Excellence, from the British Safety Council.

Awarded to Amey’s consulting business, Amey is one of only four organisations worldwide to be awarded both awards.

The awards are presented to organisations that have demonstrated excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental risks. In order to compete for the Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour, an organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in British Safety Council’s health and safety and environmental management audit scheme. The organisation has also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that it has achieved excellence in its health and safety and environmental management throughout the business.

Georgina Taylor, Head of HSEQ for Amey Consulting said: “This a fantastic accolade and a demonstration of our commitment to health, safety and environmental management, and we should all be proud to have been awarded this double prestigious honour. Whilst we celebrate this achievement, we must continue to put safety first. We are committed to continuous improvement and ensuring that everyone can work in a safe and healthy environment whist promoting and delivering the highest possible standards in sustainable infrastructure solutions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who were involved with the 5 star audits and individuals who produced the winning submission following audit success.”

Peter McGettrick, Chairman of British Safety Council, said: “On behalf of the board of trustees and staff of the British Safety Council I would like to congratulate Amey Consulting on achieving the highest standards of its health and safety and environmental management. These awards recognise the commitment, dedication and absolute professionalism undertaken. We are proud to support your organisation in its achievement and delighted we can contribute to your ongoing success.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of British Safety Council, added: “I would like to congratulate Amey Consulting and its staff on this award, in tribute to their commitment to keeping their workplace safe and healthy and contributing to safeguarding the environment”.

The award ceremony took place at the Sword and Globe of Honour Luncheon, in London on the 24th of November 2023. To read more about Amey’s commitment to Health and Safety, visit: Health and safety ( To read more about Amey’s commitment to ESG and Sustainability, visit: ESG and Sustainability (
