OCS recognised for health and safety at Devonport Royal Dockyard

05 August 2015

OCS has been recognised for its work at Devonport Royal Dockyard, Plymouth, through a Gold Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015

The award will be presented, as part of the prestigious annual scheme, during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), on 15 July, 2015.

International total facilities management (TFM) provider OCS was awarded a multi-service contract in 2012 at Devonport Royal Dockyard, the largest naval site in Western Europe, where it had provided specialist cleaning services for 17 years. OCS services include specialist preparatory ship and submarine surface cleaning and continuous on-board cleaning for refit periods, as well as deep cleaning prior to the return of ship's company to the vessel. 

The company delivers a suite of other services in the surface ship and submarine refit programme, including first attack fire fighting, confined space rescue teams, hot work sentry, dockside and on-board security, and on-board catering support.  

David Rawlins, RoSPA awards manager, said: “The awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”

Bob Taylor, OCS CEO UK Public Sector Healthcare and Infrastructure, commented, “Our team works to provide the highest standards at Devonport Royal Dockyard, and this is a demonstration of our commitment to staff wellbeing and best practice in health and safety.”

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.
