August 13, 2012
Sodexo Corporate Services Integrated Facilities Management, has had its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health recognised in this year’s RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards, achieving the Gold standard.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Awards scheme recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. It does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, awards manager at the RoSPA Awards, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention.
We congratulate Sodexo - Corporate Services Integrated Facilities Management on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”
Of the award, Nick Thompson, said: “I am delighted that Sodexo has been recognised for its thorough and original approach to health and safety in the workplace. It is something as a company we take very seriously, and this award is the result of the team’s dedicated hard work.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
