After last years’ silver success at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards, Allied Vehicles is delighted to have been able to go one step further in 2020 and be granted with the gold award.

This accolade covers the company’s safety performance for the whole of 2019. The RoSPA awards is considered to be the toughest health and competition in the World, so to achieve gold status is fantastic.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.”

Wayne Taylor, Health, Safety and Environment Manager at Allied Vehicles explained the recipe for success, “This achievement has been down to safety led by senior management and bought in to by the entire workforce. We have improved our health, safety and environment messaging through communications campaigns, our internal committee and ‘toolbox talks’. All of this work together with many other elements has combined to reduce accidents across the business.”

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.

The Award will be ‘virtually’ collected at an online ceremony in September.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our staff in their efforts – without the buy-in from the whole Allied team, this would not have been possible!
