Guinness South has struck gold at RoSPA’s occupational health and safety awards 2014.
The group achieved a gold status grading at the awards which recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents is the UK’s family safety charity.
Andy Mackay, Guinness Partnership lead for health and safety, said: "I am really proud that Guinness South has been presented with this prestigious award. It’s a recognition of the hard work and focus on health and safety of all staff across the business."
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: "The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Guinness South, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations."
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
