NINE IN A ROW FOR BUREAU VERITAS AT ROSPA AWARDS
Jul. 30 2021
Bureau Veritas UK is proud to have been awarded two prestigious Gold Medal awards in the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards for the ninth consecutive year.
Recognised once again for our own high health and safety standards, we have achieved the Gold Medal award in two categories; Occupational Health & Safety, which recognises an organisations overall health and safety performance, policies and procedures, plus Fleet Safety, recognising excellence across occupational health & safety and occupational road risk.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s awards ceremony will be hosted by RoSPA virtually in September to celebrate the award winners.
The RoSPA Health & Safety Awards were established in 1956 and are internationally recognised as the most sought-after accolade in the health and safety industry. They offer organisations a prime opportunity to benchmark safety performance year on year and ensure consistent performance between sites.
Winners are required to demonstrate evidence of their management system processes, including how these have been implemented into the organisation to ensure safety performance.
Greg Elwell, UK QHSE Manager at Bureau Veritas, said: “To achieve the gold award for nine consecutive years is a huge achievement and I’m incredibly proud of our team. We’re committed to creating and maintaining the highest standards of health and safety across the organisation and this continued recognition from RoSPA demonstrates that.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be, should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day.
“Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
