POLLARD HANDED ROSPA GOLD MEDAL (9 CONSECUTIVE GOLDS) AWARD FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY PRACTICES
Pollard has, once again, achieved a Gold Medal (9 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. This year, the prestigious award has been achieved in recognition of Pollard’s practices and achievements in helping its staff and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
Pollard’s Managing Director, Bill Badham commenting on the award said: “This is very much an award for all our dedicated staff, particularly those on site, and with the leadership of our Health and Safety Manager, Chris Wheeler, we ensure the highest standards are maintained. To have received the Gold Medal Award for the fourth year running is a significant achievement and demonstrates our commitment to health and safety within our company.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
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.
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.
