Corporate News, News
Our customers have extra reassurance of their safety after we scooped two top awards.
We are delighted to have been awarded the internationally renowned RoSPA Gold for the 13th consecutive year. We also secured a Highly Commended spot in the national Public Service & Local Government Sector Health and Safety Awards.
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.
In securing the Gold status, we had to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring pur staff, customers and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day. The evidence presented include the team’s new Covid-19 measures which ensured essential repairs and safety checks continued and also its work to ensure its many construction sites were secure.
Anna Hickman, Head of Health & Safety (People & Property), said: “We are immensely proud to have received this award in recognition of our organisational commitment to the highest standards of occupational health & safety management.
“This award is particularly special in what has been a very challenging year for all businesses. My team, like health & safety professionals up and down the country, have risen to the challenge of supporting our organisations to keep our colleagues and customers safe from Covid whilst maintaining services and our legal obligations as social landlords to keep our customers safe in their homes.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be, should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day.
“Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world.”
