For the second year running, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded a Gold Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015.
The Gold Award in the prestigious annual scheme, run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), was presented to the Trust in July.
The RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Mark Jackson, Health and Safety Lead in Estates and Facilities, said: “This is the second year in a row that the Trust has been awarded the Gold Award from Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and this highlights our on-going commitment to the health and safety of our colleagues. The Trust takes the health and safety of its patients, colleagues and visitors very seriously and we continue to enhance the way health and safety is managed”.
