Lancashire and Yorkshire-based catering wholesaler Total Foodservice has secured two internationally recognised health and safety accolades.

For the sixth year running, the firm joins 500 businesses across the globe in receiving an International Safety Award from the British Safety Council (BSC) for demonstrating commitment and determination to prevent workplace injuries and work-related ill health. Total Foodservice was awarded five stars in its Safety Council Audit.

Paul Nowell, operations and health and safety director of Total Foodservice, says: “Five stars is a huge accomplishment, especially for a smaller local business like ours. We’re extremely proud. All staff at Total Foodservice take responsibility for health and safety in the workplace.”

Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, comments: “The success criteria for our International Safety Awards is challenging and reflects the importance of ensuring risks of injury and ill health in the workplace are properly controlled. We are proud of our association with Total Foodservice and its commitment to keeping its employees and workplaces healthy and safe.”

The second accolade for Total Foodservice is a prestigious Occupational Health and Safety Silver Award from RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) – the third time Total Foodservice has won this award.

The RoSPA award will be presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 13, 2016, as the event marks 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Total Foodservice is a fifth generation family business serving the North of England with frozen, chilled and ambient foods as well as non-food and cleaning products. It operates from two depots, based in Huddersfield in West Yorkshire and Clitheroe in Lancashire. It is a member of Fairway Foodservice, a buying group made up of 17 independent wholesalers from across the UK, Ireland and Spain.
