8th June 2018, 11:12amGodfrey Syrett has been awarded the highest accolade in Health and Safety management, bringing home a RoSPA Gold Award 2018.
The award demonstrates the company’s approach and commitment to the management of health and safety across the business, and is confirmation that the health and safety of our staff is of paramount importance.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, considering elements such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Mark R Dixon, CEO and Chairman at Godfrey Syrett, comments:
“This award is a clear indication of our expectations in the leadership of Health and Safety. We have continuously improved our processes and introduced new innovations that are helping us to provide safer environments for staff and our visitors. Ensuring the health and safety of our people, and those we engage with, is our highest priority.”
Ross Teeley, Health, Safety and Quality Manager, added:
“To achieve this level of recognition at the first time of asking is a great achievement for all involved. Following a management restructure in 2017, we set up a Safety Strategy group early in the year, championed by our CEO. This resulted in our “Rethink Your Workplace” improvement programme, which is built around safe people, premises and processes. It’s great to see the plans set out in the programme translated into physical and cultural improvements throughout the company.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said:
“The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
Godfrey Syrett will be presented with the award at a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
