Success in the RoSPA Awards 2013 for Bureau Veritas UK Limited
Bureau Veritas UK Limited has had its approach to occupational safety and health recognised in an awards scheme run by the safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The Gold Award and the MORR: Gold Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2013 will be presented in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on Thursday May 16, 2013.
Dating back 57 years, 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Bureau Veritas UK Limited has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award."
Carl Anstee, Head of Health and Safety for Bureau Veritas UK Ltd said "This independent recognition, from an internationally recognised body, reinforces and confirms our approach to safety and safe systems of work through risk assessment, culture change, managing road risk and other initiatives. I am delighted that Bureau Veritas has built on last year’s success and achieved Gold."
The majority of awards that RoSPA presents are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and competitive awards also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
