Grontmij awarded RoSPA Gold Award for Health and Safety
Grontmij has won a Gold Medal award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards, for the seventh consecutive year.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks at accident records and entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition.
Grontmij has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”
Andrew Carpenter, Grontmij’s director of health and safety, added “Managing the safety and welfare of our team is a continuous process which we never take for granted.
The regular recognition of our efforts, and how we have strived for best practice, from RoSPA each year is testimony to this.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.
