TRADEBE Inutec is a winner at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017
TRADEBE Inutec, based near DORCHESTER, achieved the President's (14 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
We will be presented with the award during a ceremony later this year. The award was achieved during a special year for family-safety charity RoSPA, as it celebrates its centenary.
Through the RoSPA Awards 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. The awards are now in its 61st year.
Dr Andrew Hampson, Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Manager, said: “Achieving the President’s award for consistent Gold standard performance puts Tradebe Inutec in the top 25% of companies receiving Gold awards across all industries, and puts us up with the world’s largest nuclear waste producers in our industry. This is certainly a safety record of which we can all be PROUD. Maintaining safety performance is about making the right choices day in, day out and we should not rest on our laurels. Looking ahead a 15th Gold award would gain us the Order of Distinction and place us in the top 15% for safety performance nationally.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years. For the first time in 2017, the Patron’s Award has been presented to those organisations that have achieved consecutive gold awards for 25 years or more.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for occupational health, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2017 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 12th consecutive year.
