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 H&S industry awards.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
Only Organisations Sustaining the High Standards Receive Orders of Distinction
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, Orders of Distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Marcus Addison said, “a big well done to you all for this achievement and a huge thank you to all our directors, designers who have minimised the risks and unplanned events, project managers and our construction management teams who have made this possible. Your tremendous dedication, discipline, attention to detail and commitment have made our construction sites and our offices a safe place to work.
The safety and welfare of our people has to be our highest priority and I am sure this achievement will be recognised by both our existing and potential customers, as we work very hard to protect jobs and increase our sales opportunities in these challenging times.
Well done to all.”
