Local food manufacturer Greencore, based in Wisbech, is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Greencore has received its sixth consecutive RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its colleagues and site visitors 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.
Paul Biggs, General Manager at Wisbech said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised once again with a RoSPA Gold Award. The health, safety and wellbeing of our people is of paramount importance and we have worked hard throughout the pandemic to keep our people safe, whilst at the same time helping to feed the nation.”
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.”
Greencore is currently recruiting new colleagues and currently has over 70 vacancies. Anyone interested in joining the Greencore team can visit www.greencore.com/careers or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
