RPS Health, Safety & Risk has been awarded a RoSPA Gold Award

26.07.18

We act responsibly for our own wellbeing and safety and that of our clients. Recently the expertise of our UK Health and Safety Team has been recognised with the award of a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award.

The awards are non-competitive and are based on the organisation's individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria. Entrants must provide evidence of a good health and safety management system by answering key performance questions and supporting the answers with relevant documentation.

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. The award is recognition of our practices and achievements in helping our colleagues and clients get home safely at the end of the working day.

"This award demonstrates that behind our strong business we have a high level of H&S performance, with good safety management systems, culture, and proactive control of H&S risk. We have reached the top level of the awards and can now only go higher with consistent annual performance." Jonathan Marsh COO RPS Europe.

RoSPA Gold Award winners have achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.

 “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 1,100 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.” Julia Small RoSPA Head of Qualifications

This is a further recognition of RPS’ deep expertise in health and safety. Our Design & Development team achieved Gold last year, and our Planning & Environment team has achieved Gold previously.
