We have overcome stiff international competition to receive a prestigious RoSPA Gold Medal (for 5 consecutive Golds) Award in the Industry Sector category. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to health & safety excellence, and our dedication to ensuring staff, clients, and contractors get home safety at the end of every working day.
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.
John Bateman, SHEQ Manager, said, “I am immensely proud of our RoSPA Gold Medal (for 5 consecutive Golds) Award. This would not be possible without the commitment and dedication from our staff in making health & safety our top priority."
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 Equans NEL 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.”inability.”
