McLaughlin & Harvey is among the winners of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.
The Gold Medal, which is McLaughlin & Harvey’s 5th consecutive gold award, will be presented during a ceremony at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel on 17 September by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) as part of their prestigious annual scheme.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s Awards Manager, said:
“The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as McLaughlin & Harvey, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
