RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards
Provectus Remediation Ltd wins Silver in the 2015 RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards.
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 59 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 improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Provectus Remediation Ltd, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Provectus Managing Director Steve Langford said: “The RoSPA awards are an excellent vehicle in rewarding success and providing a benchmark for our health and safety performance, and we are delighted to receive our award in recognition of our achievements, in our first year of entering.
“We have invested significantly in our employees and supply chain to encourage better choices regarding Health and safety performance in everything we do. This achievement is not just a reflection of the dedication and commitment shown by the company’s management team, but also demonstrates the level of positive safety culture that is second nature to everyone within the organisation, at all levels. We look forward to continuing to maintain our high standards and keeping everyone safe.”
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).
