SWH receives Gold health & safety award for 9th consecutive year
SWH Group has been awarded a Gold for continuous excellence in health and safety by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the 9th consecutive year, as well as a Gold Award for Fleet Safety for the second time.
2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the awards which were established to recognise and celebrate excellence in safety performance. SWH Group has received a Gold award in the Occupational Health & Safety category for the past nine years, demonstrating the company’s commitment to the wellbeing of its employees, the community and the environment. This is the second time the company has received a Gold Award for Fleet Safety.
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.”
Tim Pegler, Safety Health Environment and Quality Manager at SWH, said: “At SWH Group we work hard to foster an environment that encourages all employees to take responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of themselves, their colleagues and our communities. These awards reflect our determination at all levels of the organisation to avoid injuries and ill health to those working on our behalf and those affected by what we do.”
Representatives from SWH Group were presented with the awards at a ceremony at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London last month.
