Health & Safety at it's best!
We are delighted to announce that we have retained our Gold Award status by RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) after having been notified today that we have received a Gold Award again this year. This is an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running Health & Safety industry awards.
The Health and Safety Team will be presented with their award, on behalf of the organisation, during a virtual ceremony on 9th September 2021.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
This award would not be possible without the commitment from all members of staff throughout the organisation and their hard work in achieving excellence in Health and Safety. This was even more important this year and we would like to say a huge thank you and well done to everyone involved!
