For a third year in succession, Polypipe Group plc, headquartered in Doncaster, has been recognised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), with a Gold Award at the 2016 RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.

Polypipe was presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 14, 2016, as the event marked its diamond anniversary.

The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

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.


Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said:

To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.

“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.


Polypipe’s Head of HSE, Kris Ramsey, said:

We are very proud that once again the hard work of the Polypipe Safety Team and our employees in continually improving health and safety standards has been recognised by RoSPA in awarding us a Gold Achievement Award for the third successive year. Most importantly, by continuing to work together to reduce the potential for accidents, the real winners are our colleagues and all those that come into contact with Polypipe.
