Hi, nice to meet you and welcome to our website...
All of us strive for the same goal: to make sure no one gets injured or ill at work. But how do we turn this goal into a set of actions that makes sure we achieve it?
Our belief is that people can only make positive contributions to health and safety if they are informed, educated, and competent and our programme of events and activities is geared to providing this.
Whether it is activities which outline current thinking, events that demonstrate best practice or information on the latest health and safety legislation our mission is to provide these in the most accessible manner possible and we’ve been doing this for over 60 years.
In 1953 six forward thinking manufacturing companies came together to form what is now Northern Ireland Safety Group. Those six companies envisaged a workplace were injury and death wasn’t the price for doing business. They felt that incident and accident prevention could only be improved by the promotion of good practice. 60 years later our mission remains the same,
The founding companies were:-
Courtalds Ltd., Newforge Ltd., Metal Box Co. Ltd., Gallaher Ltd., Scribbans Kemp and William Ewart & Sons Ltd.
