Hughes and Salvidge has achieved the Gold award in the highly prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
Run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the awards recognise businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
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.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
We will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 14th 2016.
Huge credit must go to everyone working at Hughes and Salvidge for helping us to accomplish this fantastic honour.
