VolkerFitzpatrick has been presented its fifth consecutive Gold Award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2013.
These awards are non-competitive and are based on the organisation's individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria.
To achieve a Gold Medal Award companies must not only provide evidence of a good health and safety management system, but also show that good health and safety practices have been embedded into the culture of the company and are kept at a high standard for over five years.
Steven Bridgen, head of HSEQ at VolkerFitzpatrick, said: "This is an excellent achievement and provides recognition of our efforts to continually raise health and safety standards, ensuring everyone goes home safely each day."
The RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
