The Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) awards were held at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday 6 June.
Phil Thomas, EH & S Manager at Securitas UK, commented: “At Securitas, safety is synonymous with security and is the first order of the day. We all have a part to play in keeping ourselves, our colleagues and our clients safe and this President’s Award reflects our commitment to health, safety and wellbeing over the past 13 years."
RoSPA judge each company against 12 core elements, reviewing their submitted evidence and safety statistics. "Entrants must demonstrate an evolving H&S culture which strengthens from year to year – you can never rest on your laurels. Recognition by RoSPA is the result of the hard work and commitment of everyone in Securitas to put health, safety and wellbeing first. We want to make sure everyone goes home safe.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards.
“Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The majority of RoSPA 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.
