SLR Consulting awarded Gold Medal at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017
SLR has been awarded a gold medal award for the 8th consecutive year in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2017. Through the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents RoSPA Awards 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.
SLR will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the ExCeL, London, on the 20th June 2017. The award was achieved during a special year for family-safety charity RoSPA, as it celebrates its centenary.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
There are specialist awards for occupational health, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Andrew Turk, SLR Consulting’s Global Health and Safety Manager, said: “We are very pleased to win a gold medal award for the 8th consecutive year. The award really goes to every member of staff who has contributed to keeping themselves and each other safe, by ensuring health and safety is thought about as an integral part of what we do in SLR day to day.”
