Rospa Gold Award
Community Gateway Association (CGA) has had its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health recognised in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012.
CGA has won a Gold award for the second year running in the annual scheme, dating back to 1956 the awards are the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK.
The RoSPA Awards scheme 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.
It does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, awards manager at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity with a 95-year history, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention.
We congratulate Community Gateway Association on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”
John Bennett CGA’s Health and Safety manager commenting on achieving the award said, “Everyone at CGA is, in some way, involved in the provision of a safe place of work, or in delivering services to our communities in a safer way. It is very pleasing to see that input evaluated and again deemed worthy of a Gold Award”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
