Chair of the Food and Drink Manufacturing committee John Boyle said. “Well done to everyone involved, it shows as a group we are capable of great things. It’s great to be awarded the Rob Strange Award for successful collaboration. Four members of the group authored the Recipe for Safety publication in conjunction with the HSE, Unions and Industry. Without collaboration, teamwork and the hard work of everyone involved, including the HSE commitment to support the document this valuable guidance document would not exist, It was a great honour and privilege to collect these awards on behalf of the group”.
