British Cables Company Limited, based in MANCHESTER, has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its staff get home safely at the end of the working day.
British Cables Company Limited has achieved a President’s (14 consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at ExCeL, London on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.
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.
Kevin Samuel, Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have once again been awarded the prestigious President’s Award from RoSPA, especially on the back of 14 Gold Awards. This is testament to the dedication and hard work that all of our employees continue to do. A healthy, happy and particularly a safe environment is what we always strive for. This award proves that we are succeeding.”
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.”
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.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.
