Rainham Industrial Services Ltd, has fought off stiff international competition to scoop a prestigious RoSPA Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence.
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 every 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’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Conveying the good news to the business SHEQ Director Steve George said ‘Rainham Industrial Services is proud to announce that we have been awarded the RoSPA Presidents award for the second consecutive year. The award marks 11 consecutive Gold Medal Awards and is based on evidence of successful health and safety management and high levels of compliance coupled with a below average accident frequency rate.
The health and safety culture of the business has grown steadily and sustainably over the years and continues to ever improve. However, at Rainham Industrial Services, we aim to go even further by introducing new technology, introducing new and improved methods of work, building on the competence of our employees, and enabling us to deliver a best-in-class service to our clients with health and safety at the forefront of everything we do. Working together has got us this far and it is a journey that the entire organisation must buy into in order to reach our ultimate destination of zero harm. Thank you everyone for your efforts to date.’
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 Rainham Industrial Services Ltd 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.
