A people company
Securitas is a people company and protecting the health and safety of employees has remained an absolute priority throughout COVID-19.
Employees benefit from working for a values and purpose-driven company that offers good working conditions, fair wages and great opportunities for career development, whilst clients receive high-quality service, with added value and continuity.
World leaders in health and safety practice
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2000 entrants seek to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Phil Thomas, Director, EHS, Audit and Compliance, Securitas UK explained: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised once again with not one, but two RoSPA Gold Awards. And this year, we are particularly honoured to receive a RoSPA Order of Distinction, for our approach to Occupational Health and Safety.
The RoSPA awards are testament to the work of our security officers and engineers and the role they played as front-line key workers throughout the global pandemic. We are very proud of the work we do to keep our people, our clients and our local communities safe.”
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. Currently, around 7 million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year.
I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
