GRAHAM has been awarded its eighth consecutive Gold Award and fourth successive Gold Medal by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in recognition of its exemplary Health and Safety processes and performance throughout 2018.
RoSPA is an influential charity that aims to “save lives and prevent life-changing injuries” which occur as a result of accidents.
The internationally renowned RoSPA Awards are a benchmark for best practice in Health and Safety management, and offer organisations a “prime opportunity to prove their ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards”.
Evidence demonstrating GRAHAM’s positive health and safety culture was gathered from a range of sites throughout the UK.
Commenting on the success, Andrew Cooke, GRAHAM Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) Director, said:
“Winning our eighth consecutive Gold Award and fourth consecutive Gold Medal from RoSPA again provides evidence that our current proactive health and safety strategy remains a core value that underpins both our continued success, and our ‘Forward Momentum’ vision for the business. Collectively, they also demonstrate our ongoing drive to reduce accidents and incidents.
“The RoSPA Awards are one of the leading Health and Safety awards in the UK, so we are understandably proud of our ongoing record. The standards consistently get harder each year, but we continue to improve and set the highest standards.
“We acknowledge that our industry-leading statistics cannot be achieved without the focus, commitment and dedication of the entire GRAHAM team, and our supply chain partners. We are grateful for their continued support.”
RoSPA Gold Award winners have achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk, and very low levels of error, harm and loss.
A RoSPA Gold Medal is awarded after five consecutive Gold Awards. It is awarded each year that the gold level is retained.
