NIS is a winner in the RoSPA Awards 2016
NIS have been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016 and have achieved the President's (10 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
We will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 13, 2016, as the event marks its diamond anniversary.
The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
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.
Adrian Woodward, NIS Head of Assurance, said: “I am very proud that we have been awarded the RoSPA President’s award this year, this was only possible because of everyone’s efforts in keeping NIS a consistently safe place to work. This award is in recognition of us achieving a Gold medal every year for the past 10 years. The awards are based on a comprehensive set of key performance indicators and continuous improvements in health and safety performance. Thanks to everyone for your part in our success!”
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 for our winners. 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.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
