POLLARD PICKS UP PRESTIGIOUS RoSPA AWARD
Pollard has again been recognised by RoSPA in their 2017 Health & Safety Awards, with the South West based regional contractor achieving the accolade of Gold Medal for a second year as reward for seven consecutive Gold Awards.
Commenting on the award, Managing Director of Pollard, Bill Badham said
“We were extremely proud last year that our health and safety culture was recognised by RoSPA with the award of their Gold Medal Award following 6 consecutive Gold Awards. To have again received this accolade for our 7th consecutive Gold Award demonstrates our commitment to maintaining and improving our standards.”
“This is a fantastic achievement and my thanks go to all our staff for their effort and in particular Chris Wheeler, our Health and Safety Manager, for his leadership.”
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.
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
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.
Through the 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. The awards are now in its 61st year.
