RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety achievements

Published: 29th June 2021

We’re really proud to have achieved a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award, an internationally recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards helping to ensure the safety of our staff and tenants.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Mark Perkins, Health and Safety Manager at Saffron said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised with a RoSPA Gold Award. The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and tenants is of paramount importance, and we have worked hard through the pandemic to keep our people safe, while at the same time maintaining essential services to our tenants.”

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.”
