Freyssinet is celebrating after receiving an internationally-recognised RoSPA award for demonstrating high health and safety standards for the second consecutive year in the row.
Freyssinet received the RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its employees, customers and contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day. In a year which saw the COVID-19 pandemic bring additional challenges to our working lives, the award acknowledges the company’s high standards and dedication to keeping its employees and clients safe in exceptional circumstances.
The RoSPA awards recognise organisations that are world-leading in health and safety practice and culture, demonstrating well developed occupational health and safety management systems, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.
Freyssinet’s Safety Manager Darren Collinswood said: “Being able to maintain the high standards required to achieve RoSPA Gold again, whilst dealing with the demands of the COVID pandemic is testimony to the constant dedication of the whole of Freyssinet to maintaining the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and others affected by our works.”
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.”
