NIS wins another RoSPA Gold Medal
NIS is delighted to win again at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2015. The Gold Medal (9 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on July 14, 2015.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, 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 NIS, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Adrian Woodward, Head of Assurance, said: "This award is once again confirmation that our employees efforts to improve health and safety at NIS continue to be recognised. We have now achieved 9 consecutive Gold awards. This is due to the commitment to health and safety that is such a vital part of the culture at NIS and involves all employees in constantly striving to improve health and safety at NIS. Well done to everyone at NIS who looks out for themselves and each other in making sure we are all working safely and going home at the end of the day as fit and healthy as when we arrive."
