McLaren Construction Ltd’s approach to occupational safety and health has been recognised in an awards scheme run by the safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The Gold award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2013 will be presented in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on Wednesday May 15, 2013.
Dating back 57 years, 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.
McLaren Construction Ltd 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.” Phil Pringle, Managing Director, McLaren Construction, said: “McLaren Construction Ltd is proud to receive the Gold award from RoSPA in recognition of our continual improvement and commitment to the development and maintenance of a robust health and safety management system, which has clear benefits to our employees and those associated with our business.”
