Trent & Dove Housing Ltd is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
The prestigious awards ceremony was carried out a little differently this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak and employees were invited to attend a live virtual ceremony on the afternoon of Thursday 3rd September.
Trent & Dove achieved a RoSPA Gold and Highly Commended in the Public Sector and Local Authority Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day. They also received a mention by the RoSPA presenter on the live stream.
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.
Anna Hickman, Head of Health & Safety at Trent & Dove, said: “It is an honour to be Highly Commended in the RoSPA Industry Sector Awards, a true testament of our organisational commitment to keeping staff and customers safe and well. I am really proud of my team and everyone else in the organisation that plays their part in ensuring our health & safety risks are well managed. As we work hard to overcome the challenges presented by the pandemic, our shared focus for excellence in health & safety management is all the more important.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, added: “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.”
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.
