Willmott Dixon Interiors is among the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014.
The Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) was presented during a ceremony at ExCeL London on June 17.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards , which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Willmott Dixon Interiors, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Graham Shaw, Director of Operations said: “We are extremely pleased to have received the Gold RoSPA award in recognition for our high standards in Health & safety in the work place. Willmott Dixon Interiors pride themselves in maintaining an exemplary health and safety record, and continue to raise the standards across the business, centred around our Allsafe core values. We firmly believe that No-one should suffer pain and that all accidents can be prevented. If everyone looks out for others as well as themselves we can create a zero tolerance to unsafe behaviour and change the culture throughout the industry”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors, and they also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
