Greencore Food to Go in Northampton has been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
The site achieved the President’s Award for 12 consecutive Gold awards in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
A special presentation will be made to the Greencore team in July at the RoSPA diamond anniversary awards event.
The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
Lee Hazlewood, SHE Manager for Greencore Food to Go in Northampton, said: “We are delighted to have won the President’s Award in the 2016 RoSPA awards for our achievements in occupational health and safety throughout the last year. This success is a testament to the hard work over the past year of not only the SHE Department but the entire site itself in ensuring the health and safety of our staff, visitors and contractors.”
