December 2010 - IRC Harmondsworth awarded British Safety Council 5 star certificate
At the first time of asking IRC Harmondsworth was awarded a British Safety Council 5 star certificate for health and safety. Harmondsworth scored a fantastic 96.7%, which is even so more impressive considering the Centre opened the new house blocks only 4 months earlier. Hopefully, later this year they will also join Campsfield House in achieving a Sword of Honour.
