Raymond Brown Aggregates & Waste Solutions achieve Gold success in RoSPA 2015 Awards
RAYMOND Brown Aggregates & Waste Solutions have achieved their sixth RoSPA Gold Award and will receive their second RoSPA Gold Medal later this year. The prestigious annual scheme run by RoSPA will see the awards presented to each of the Group companies during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on 14 July 2015.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognize commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention at work.
Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organizations 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: ‘The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organizations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Raymond Brown Aggregates & Waste Solutions, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.’
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organizations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors, and they also recognize excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
This year, RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards ceremonies are being held in three locations: at ExCeL London on 16 June, alongside the Safety and Health Expo 2015; in Birmingham on 14 and 15 July; and in Glasgow on 17 September, the day after the RoSPA Scotland Occupational Health and Safety Congress.
