RoSPA 2020 Gold Award
UK-based Derwent Facilities Management has been selected for a Gold RoSPA Health and Safety Award.
The majority of RoSPA awards are non-competitive, and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, President’s awards, Orders of Distinction, and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations which sustain the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Anthony Vasey, the company's Head of SHEQ, says:
"We are absolutely delighted to win a gold RoSPA award. This award demonstrates our total commitment to health and safety and recognises the robust safety management system we have in place to ensure our colleagues and customers can be safe in the knowledge that we have excellent health and safety processes to protect them."
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards & Events, adds:
"The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
"RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider."
This year's awards are being sponsored by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).
