St Leger Homes has won an internationally recognised award. 
The company - which manages 21,000 properties on behalf of Doncaster Council - now holds four British Safety Council Swords of Honour.

The award is presented for excellence in health and safety management and is the British Safety Council’s highest accolade.

Susan Jordan, Chief Executive of St. Leger Homes, said: “It is a tremendous honour to receive this award for the fourth time. I am so proud of our staff who work together to maintain such high standards and protect our customers and colleagues.”

Organisations from across the world compete to achieve the sword each year, with just 50 reaching the required standard in the past year.

Coun Christine Mills, Doncaster Cabinet Member for Housing, added: “St. Leger Homes has achieved an excellent standard of health and safety. My congratulations go to everyone who has worked towards achieving this outstanding result.”

In order to be considered for the Sword of Honour organisations have to achieve the top scoring of five stars in a health and safety management audit. They must then demonstrate to an independent panel of experts that they have excellent health and safety management throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom
