WYG has won another gold award at last night’s (19 May) prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards ceremony 2011.
This year’s ceremony, held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, marks the consultancy’s seventh consecutive gold award highlighting the high standards in health and safety the business follows.
Sponsored by the leading health and safety professional examining body, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), the RoSPA awards programme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
Stuart Spooner, Group Health and Safety Director, WYG said: “The successful attainment of this award clearly demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to health and safety at the core of our activities and business ethos. I firmly believe that the real success story is the way that all our colleagues within WYG, at all levels, have embraced this ethos and for this I thank each and every one of them; we could not have done this without them.”
David Rawlins, Awards Manager, RoSPA said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. WYG 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.”
Running for 55 years, 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.
