Securitas retains the RoSPA President's Award for health and safety

06 July 2018

Securitas UK has received this prestigious award (12 consecutive Golds) in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its employees and clients get home safely at the end of the working day.

The internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. Securitas was presented with their award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, July 5, 2018.

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.

Phil Thomas, EH&S Manager at Securitas UK commented: “In entering annually for this prestigious award, it gets no easier to attain and in some respects we do have to challenge ourselves all the more to do so. 

“Looking back over the previous year, I am proud of all that Securitas has achieved, but there are always more ways to further improve safety. Gaining this award demonstrates we are firmly committed to the pursuit of a fundamental aim of the organisation to ensure the safety, health and welfare of those working with Securitas”.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

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.

Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2018 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 13th consecutive year.
