Additionally, RoSPA will present a fifth Gold Award to EMCOR UK---the prestigious Gold Medal Award, in recognition of the company receiving seven Gold Awards in seven years for its health and safety practices.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Awards recognise an organisation that has achieved a high level of performance, whilst demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk, and low levels of error, harm and loss. EMCOR UK was specifically recognised for its work with clients DSTL, BAE North, United Utilities, and Thames Water Utilities Limited (Thames Water), as well as its overall achievements over the last seven years.
The RoSPA Awards; the longest-running safety awards scheme in the UK, receives entries from organisations around the world, and recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
This industry acknowledgement closely follows EMCOR UK being awarded an International Safety Award from the British Safety Council in March 2018, in recognition of the dedication shown by the business in keeping its workers and workplaces healthy and safe during the 2017 calendar year.
Keith Chanter, CEO, EMCOR UK, said: “We are honoured that our commitment to health and safety best practice will be recognised by RoSPA with five prestigious Gold Awards this year. This acknowledgement from RoSPA represents important recognition for EMCOR UK and work with our clients DSTL, BAE North, United Utilities, and Thames Water and reflects our hard work and commitment in upholding the high standards we are known for in the industry, and amongst our staff, customers, clients and contractors.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
