POLLARD SECURES PRESTIGIOUS RoSPA AWARD
The philosophy of “Health and Safety is at the heart of everything we do” has been demonstrated yet again with the recent announcement of a third RoSPA Gold Medal in consecutive years in recognition of 8 consecutive Golds Awards from 2011.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, 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.”
“The majority of 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 sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.”
Pollard’s Managing Director, Bill Badham, commenting on the award said: “To have received the Gold Medal Award for the third year running is a significant achievement, highlighting the importance we give to health and safety together with our commitment to ensuring the highest standards are maintained. This is very much an award for our dedicated staff, notably those on site, and in particular our Health & Safety Manager, Chris Wheeler, whose leadership I applaud.”
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
