On 12th July, Ian Sweeney, Group SHEQ Manager, was proudly presented the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President’s Award on behalf of the business during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel.
The award marks a prestigious accolade celebrating our continued excellence in safety performance, for which we have successfully achieved 13 years’ consecutive Gold awards.
Through the RoSPA Awards 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. The awards are now in their 61st year.
Mick Allen, Group Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Director, WYG, said: “This success is very much a result of all our continued efforts striving to put safety at the forefront of all we do. Well done all and congratulations.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
