Veolia wins RoSPA’s Order of Distinction with 16 Consecutive Golds
Veolia Water Technologies (Veolia) has once again had its approach to health and safety recognised in an awards scheme run by the safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Veolia has achieved an Order of Distinction (16 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, June 6, 2019.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Lyndsey Wicks, Health & Safety Manager for Veolia Water Technologies Northern Europe said: "Health & Safety is our number one priority, and we are delighted to receive this award for the sixteenth consecutive year. We take a proactive approach to exceed Health & Safety standards and will continue to promote a positive Health & Safety culture within our organisation in line with our Global Corporate Always Safe Health and Safety Culture ."
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the [email protected] [email protected] Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
