NUVIA has again been recognised for its approach to occupational safety and health by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) by securing the Order of Distinction, which recognises 24 consecutive years of Gold standard safety.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Mike Lewis, Nuvia’s Head of Assurance, said:
“The health and safety of our employees, contractors and the public are fundamental to our success, and a strong culture and an excellent record help our business and people prosper. Our Board and Senior Management continually review and identify what we can do to push ourselves further, achieve better things for all stakeholders, and continuously improve our health and safety system and performance.
“We are delighted to receive this award which reflects our ongoing commitment to a solid and proactive safety culture within Nuvia. This external recognition validates the hard work, diligence and investment of our employees into our proactive health and safety culture, both at our sites and when working on clients’ premises.”
Nuvia is delighted to have received the highest possible recognition for the ninth 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.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said:
“The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7 million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive 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 looks at accident records and entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
