Allied Vehicles Group, has achieved a Silver in the internationally-renowned Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
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. Allied’s award is in recognition of its practices and achievements in ensuring the health and safety of staff, visitors and contractors on its premises.
Wayne Taylor, Allied’s Group Health and Safety Manager, said: “At Allied, we are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all employees, visitors and outside contractors whilst on company premises. It’s a constant focus in all of work, so to be recognised in this way by RoSPA is really gratifying. We are not going to rest on our laurels though: we are always looking at ways to do even better.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
