UKDN Waterflow continues to achieve the highest standard in occupational safety and health and been recognised with a gold award in a scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The Gold award has been presented as part of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2013. Safety is a key part of UKDN Waterflow’s ethos and the company has already this year won a British Safety Council International Safety Award. The company has consistently won these key awards since 2004.
The RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It 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. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. UKDN Waterflow has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”
James Taylor, Head of Health, Safety, Quality and Environment (HSQE) at UKDN Waterflow, said: “Our ‘First Time Right’ approach to health and safety and rigorous attention to detail on any UKDN Waterflow project ensures that our people, and any others on site, have all the necessary protection to ensure that they safely get home to their loved ones at the end of each day. Health and Safety is embedded in our day to day operation and receiving the Gold award reinforces our commitment to a safe working environment.”
The RoSPA awards mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations such as UKDN Waterflow, who maintain the very highest standards, win gold medals.
