The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme 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.
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. Pickfords 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."
Managing Director Russell Start said: "We are thrilled to have received the RoSPA Presidents’ Award. The award pays testament to the hard work that has been put in by our employees to ensure that the company upholds exceptional health and safety standards in the workplace and in our client’s premises. Not only have these standards been implemented, but they have been adopted as core values by the whole organisation."
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.
Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellence in specific areas, such as the management of occupational road risk.
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.
