Longworth Building Services Limited handed RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety practices
We have been handed a prestigious RoSPA award in recognition of our practices and achievements in helping its staff, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
Longworth Building Services Limited has achieved a Gold in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
Our SHEQ Manager Melissa Fazackerley commented “Longworth are committed to making a change and being a leader in our industry, achieving the RoSPA Gold on our first entry into the awards just shows that the effort we put into health and safety works.
The awards are used as a benchmark for health and safety at Longworth as it helps us improve our health and safety management. The award is a result of the hard work and dedication from everyone at #teamlongworth and it will hopefully continue to drive that motivation forward for a long time to come. Well done everyone.”
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
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.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.
Yet another fantastic achievement for our team as we continue to strive to better ourselves and our working environment!
