For the first time, Lindum has achieved a Gold standard in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
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.
Lindum will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
Simon Gregory, Lindum Group Director with responsibility for Health and Safety, said: “We are incredibly proud of this award, which we believe sends a clear message to our employees and to our clients that we take their welfare very seriously.
“Health and Safety is a priority at board level and this flows through the Lindum business at all levels.
“But what this award really demonstrates is that the teams on site, at the forefront of the work we do, try to make sure they have safety built into their daily working practices.”
Lindum’s performance on health, safety and wellbeing is recorded in the Group’s annual report and the Executive Board review Health and Safety Reports from managers at their monthly meetings.
The Health and Safety Policy is reviewed every year in February and no limit is placed on the cost of health and safety training. If an employee requires training to ensure they are competent to carry out their duties courses are made available for them internally or externally.
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.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 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.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2018 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 13th consecutive year.
