Southbay is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Southbay Civil Engineering Ltd has received a RoSPA Gold Medal Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff/clients/contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
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 what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Paul Stephenson, Manging Director said: “To be awarded the RoSPA Gold Medal for the sixth year in a row is a fantastic achievement for everyone involved with the company. Health and safety is foremost to effective running of our operations and to receive this internationally-recognised award is extremely satisfying. Construction has historically being a high-risk sector and we are delighted to meet the high standards RoSPA expect and thereby minimising risk to anybody involved in our business. This award reinforces our commitment to health and safety to our employees, our stakeholders and our clients. I would like to congratulate all of our employees who each received a bonus of £150 for their efforts in maintaining a high standard of safety culture and pushing for ever increasing standards throughout the business. We look forward to continue to maintaining our Gold Standard in future 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 7million 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.”
