We're thrilled to announce our tenth consecutive gold win at the 2022 RoSPA Health & Safety Awards, resulting in the achievement of the celebrated President’s Award.
With the RoSPA Health & Safety Awards renowned as being one of the most prestigious and recognised schemes in the world, our win of our tenth consecutive gold and the esteemed President’s Award is testament to our ongoing commitment and dedication to health and safety.
To win the award, we had to demonstrate the health and safety management systems and policies in place and provide evidence on how we uphold our outstanding standards across all sites and locations.
Recognising that health and safety is an ongoing commitment, we've continued to make conscious efforts to maintain and improve our policies and procedures. One such example is the Evotix reporting tool and mobile phone app, that has been rolled out internally. Making it even easier for all staff to report potential hazards and/or risks, the app also encourages a more proactive approach to health and safety.
Speaking about the achievement, Gordon MacDonald, CEO at Mabey Hire, said: “Being awarded the RoSPA President’s Award is a great, landmark moment for Mabey Hire. It’s credit to everyone at Mabey Hire that we’ve been able to achieve our tenth consecutive gold. While health and safety is embedded in the business, it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure it’s carried through and present in our everyday working practices.
“As a temporary works specialist, we help our customers to deliver their projects safely and efficiently every day. Beyond this, we ensure a safe working space for all our people, whether that’s at our offices, our 17 depots, out on site or on the road. Everyone home safe, every day – that’s our safety vision.”
Julie Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, added: “This is a fantastic and well-deserved accomplishment. By receiving this recognition, Mabey Hire join like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, who represent the very best in their approach to Health and Safety. I would like to add my personal thanks for all the work that it has taken to secure this well-deserved award – congratulations to all those involved, who champion and drive up Health and Safety standards every day. You are a fantastic example to others in your sector.”
One of the longest running of its kind in the UK, the RoSPA Health & Safety Awards receive thousands of entries every year from organisations world-wide and across multiple different sectors, including construction, healthcare, transport and education. While the majority of the awards mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels, President’s Awards are presented to organisations who have sustained the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
The prestigious honour will be presented to us at an awards ceremony in May later this year.
