Interserve Construction is celebrating after landing two internationally recognised awards for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Interserve Construction has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for the twentieth consecutive year and an Order of Distinction for working hard to ensure its staff, customers and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Gold medals and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Paul Gandy, Managing Director at Interserve Construction, said: “This is a great testament to Interserve Construction’s commitment to health and safety and the support of our dedicated colleagues in ensuring that all our employers, customers and the public remain safe in the working environment.
“As a strategic supplier to the Government, our continued commitment to our customers, particularly in the NHS, is to keep our site operations going where it is safe and effective to do so during COVID-19, based on the guidance issued by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) while protecting and minimising the risk to our staff, suppliers, customers and the general public.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2020 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 15th consecutive year.
