RoSPA Gold Medal for Churchill

Listen to this article

Soft service provider Churchill has received a Gold Medal from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) following seven consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards.

RoSPA judges evaluate a comprehensive evaluation of an organisation’s health and safety (H&S) systems, including an assessment of corporate policies and the degree of investment in best safety practices by senior leaders, buy-in and input from its workforce, the number of accident investigation reported, and its remediation policies.

Churchill’s Gold Medal is testimony to the group’s consistently high health and safety standards over several years (Gold Medal status is reserved for organisations that have received RoSPA Gold Awards for between 5 and 9 years).

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards are the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into their 67th year, the Awards attract 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.

Amanda Lenehan, head of QHSE at Churchill, says: “RoSPA sets a high bar to win a Gold Award, so we’re delighted to have won for a seventh consecutive year. We take pride in providing a safe and secure workplace for our employees and customers. This award is testament to those objectives and we look forward to aiming for an eight Gold Medal next year.”

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

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, adds: “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 Churchill 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.”

Three RoSPA Awards ceremonies will take place next month, in Dubai, London and Glasgow.
