CLEAN is a winner in the RoSPA Awards 2015
Posted on Apr 22, 2015
We are delighted to announce CLEAN is among the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.
The Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on July 14, 2015.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as CLEAN, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Stewart MacDonnell Group Health, Safety and Environment Manager, said:
“Over the last several years, we have worked very hard to move the organisation forward in all areas of our Health, Safety and Environmental responsibilities to set an example of excellence within our own industry sector.
The commitment to this improvement is apparent throughout the company and to have accreditation from some of the worlds’ most highly respected organisations, such as the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), The British Safety Council (BSC) and the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The RoSPA Gold Award, the International Award from the British Safety Council and the FORS Bronze Award, along with our Safe Contractor accreditation, demonstrates the success of the work that has been undertaken and our willingness to lead the improvements in our industry standards.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and the reduction experienced in personal injuries and vehicle damage accidents and incidents (which also have cost implications) have been very significant.
We continue to strive, not just to maintain our current standards, but to continuously improve on them.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors, and they also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
