For the third year running, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded a Gold Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
The RoSPA Awards, which date back 60 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.
Mark Jackson, Head of Health and Safety and Compliance in Estates and Facilities, said: “This is the third 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”.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.”
A presentation awards ceremony will take place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 13 2016, as the event marks its diamond anniversary.
