Barhale wins internationally recognised health and safety accolade from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)5th April 2023
Barhale has won a RoSPA President’s (13 consecutive Golds) Health and Safety Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence and dedication to ensuring its staff get home safely at the end of every working day.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have 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, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Andy Dodman, Barhale’s HSEQ Director, said: “The confirmation of this award, for the 13th consecutive year, demonstrates the positive safety culture within our business where our people continue to maintain the highest standards in health and safety practice consistently, year on year. This award shows the commitment our people have every day in keeping our standards at the highest possible levels, ensuring everyone working for the business returns home safe and well after every working day.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “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 Barhale 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.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
