CHC wins RoSPA Gold Medal for safety
Cheetham Hill Construction's approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health has been recognised in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012.
The Company was awarded a Gold Medal by RoSPA for five consecutive years of Gold Award status, maintaining a very high standard of occupational health and safety over this period.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety 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 does not just look at accident records, but also entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
Phil Ross, Director for Cheetham Hill Construction Ltd said: "Being recognised by RoSPA and receiving this Gold Medal is a great achievement for the Company, which identifies pro-active safety management as an integral factor of the construction process."
David Rawlins, Awards Manager at RoSPA, said: "The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate Cheetham Hill Construction Ltd on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line."
