Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL) has won important awards from one of the world’s foremost health and safety organisations for the second year running.

The independent audit took an in-depth look at the way the site manages and implements its health, safety and environment processes.

DSRL’s Assurance Director, Alan Scullion, said: “These results demonstrate our commitment to the protection of the environment and the health and safety of our staff.

“Participating in these independent audits means that we must constantly evaluate our performance, and improve our ways of working.

“Achieving a good result is due to the performance and dedication of our staff and contractors.”
