Estates Gold Medal

Earlier this year, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust became the first Trust in the country to be awarded the Gold Medal in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards, an annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. Last week, the team at the Trust were presented with their certificate following a ceremony in Birmingham.

The RoSPA Awards recognise achievements in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The Trust received the medal after having receiving the Gold Award for five consecutive years.

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive, said: “The health and safety of our colleagues, patients and visitors at the Trust is extremely important to us and it is a fantastic achievement that our teams have been recognised for their hard work for five consecutive years. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
