This accolade is given to organisations that have achieved RoSPA’s Gold Medal Health and Safety Award for at least ten years in succession, and is in recognition for Beyond Housing’s long-standing dedication to ensuring the safety of its colleagues and customers.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the awards have almost 2,000 entries each year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive, competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Paul Smith, Health & Safety Manager at Beyond Housing, said: “To consistently meet RoSpA’s Gold Award standard over the past ten years is an outstanding achievement. We are very proud to receive the President’s Award as a further reflection of the hard work and determination that our colleagues continue to put into keeping themselves and others safe.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that Beyond Housing has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
