Greencore’s Wisbech site has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its safety practices and achievements. The site achieved a Gold in the internationally-renowned RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) 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.
Safety, Health & Environment Manager at Wisbech, Samantha Truluck said: “This is a fantastic achievement for us and great recognition for all the colleagues that have supported us improving our safety culture.
“The most important thing when we come to work is ensuring we also go home safety at the end of our working day too and we can only do that by making sure we all focus on keeping safe.”
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.”
Well done to all our team in Wisbech!
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
