Polypipe is among the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014.
The Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on May 14, 2014.
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 58 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 the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems such as Polypipe, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.
Polypipe’s Group Health and Safety Manager, Jean Illingworth, said:
We are very pleased that the hard work of the Safety Team and our employees in continually improving health and safety standards has been recognised by RoSPA in awarding us a Gold Achievement Award. However, by working together to reduce the potential for accidents, year on year, the real winners are our employees.
