The Greencore team in Northampton is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Greencore Northampton has received the RoSPA commended award in the Food, Drink & Manufacturing Sector for working hard to ensure that colleagues get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

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.

Lee Hazlewood, SHE Business Partner at Greencore Northampton, said: “To be Food & Drink Industry Sector award winners for two years in a row, where we have had to demonstrate improvement, systems, processes that has enabled our continual improvement programme in our Occupational, Health & Safety performance, especially through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, is particularly pleasing. This is fantastic news and we are delighted to have sustained our RoSPA Gold status for 17 consecutive years and to be named Industry Sector award winners for the last two years.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.

“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
