AFM has scooped the top prize at the 2018 Guernsey Occupational Safety and Health Association (GOSHA) Awards whilst a staff member from the same firm won the main individual award.
Held at La Grande Mare, the GOSHA Awards recognise local businesses that demonstrate innovation and excellence in health and safety at work and AFM took the honours with the ‘Best of the Best’trophy whilst Katie Taylor, HR Administrator, was presented with the Individual or Young Achiever Award.
Andrew Mills, Chairman of GOSHA, said the Awards are designed to encourage all organisations, not just those involved in manufacturing or construction, to think seriously about health and safety and the overall quality of submissions was on a par with previous years.
‘All businesses, large or small, should ensure that workplace health and safety is a top priority and the companies who participated in the Awards for this year all demonstrated innovation andexcellence which is extremely encouraging.’

The six awards are:
- ???? Construction Excellence

The panel of judges picked AFM from the winners of the six main categories as the ‘Best of the Best’, awarded to the company showing exceptional initiative, excellence or commitment. The categories also acknowledged commitment to good practice and included for the first time, an Individual or Young Safety Champion Award, won by Miss Taylor.
