Trent & Dove and RoSPA
Trent & Dove Housing has been entering the RoSPA Achievement Awards since 2008 as part of our overall strategy to improve our health & safety performance year on year. We're proud to hold 14 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards. In 2022 we were awarded the Sir George Earl Trophy - RoSPA's highest accolade. The judging panel noted our highly engaged, driven approach to continually developing health and safety systems that went above and beyond in their pursuit of protecting staff, while positively impacting Trent & Dove’s tenants and their families.
“The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat."
We have launched a fall prevention project aiming to help people recognise and address fall risks. We are offering Fall Fighter training sessions to our colleagues and customers and free fall prevention home visits to all over-60s living in Trent & Dove properties. Both are designed to introduce simple, effective, and low-cost control measures that can reduce the chance of a fall and help our customers feel safer in their homes.
