Success for Nuvia in the RoSPA Awards

29 April 2020

NUVIA has again been recognised for its approach to occupational safety and health by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

For the eighth time, NUVIA has received The Order of Distinction, recognising 23 consecutive years of Gold standard safety and will receive the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Award at a ceremony in Birmingham later this year.

The RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill-health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Mike Lewis, Nuvia’s Head of Assurance, said

“Health and safety is always evolving, and we never stop looking for new and improved ways to keep our employees safe when they are at work. Receiving these accolades from RoSPA shows that we are always going the extra mile to meet the demands of our people as well as our clients. It is also poignant that the award has been announced at a time when NUVIA, along with the rest of the UK economy, is making big changes to ensure business continuity during a time of national emergency and it reminds us that the health and safety standards we have set ourselves have to be maintained despite the challenging circumstances.”

Nuvia is delighted to have received the highest possible recognition for the eighth year, following our success in winning the Sir George Earle Trophy, RoSPA’s highest accolade, last year, the Workforce Involvement in Safety and Health (WISH) Trophy in 2018 and the Engineering Services Sector Award in five of the previous six years.

An award ceremony and gala dinner are scheduled to take place in Birmingham on September 8. See www.rospa.com/awards/ for more information about the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
