Ground Control win Gold Medal AwardGround Control has been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.

The national company achieved the Gold Medal (6 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Ground Control will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the ExCeL, London, on June 21, 2016, as the event marked its diamond anniversary.

The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.

“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”

Ground Control’s HSQE Manager, Roger Barron commented: “Hearing that we have won a 6th consecutive Gold Medal Award from RoSPA for Occupational Health & Safety is a fantastic accolade and something to be very proud of!  It should be celebrated; your continued commitment and dedication to health and safety  is very much appreciated. We should however never be complacent, and continually strive to reduce accidents and incidents within the company and develop a safety culture that includes an open and honest approach, sharing of information and a questioning attitude in our day to day working environment. Well done everyone.”
