Ground Control Awarded RoSPA Gold Medal Award
The Gold Medal (5 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be presented during a ceremony at ExCeL London on June 16.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Ground Control Limited, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Ground Control’s HSQE Director, Philip Trehern, said:
“A big thank you to all those who check their machines, report near misses, participate in audits, deliver toolbox talks, prepare risk assessments and work safely each and every day. This commitment and dedication across all business streams was fully reflected in our ROSPA 2015 submission. So to have won our fifth consecutive ROSPA GOLD award and the coveted GOLD MEDAL is a terrific recognition. Thank you all once again for helping us build our reputation one safe act at a time.”
