Wynne Construction is celebrating winning for the fourth year running, one of the prestigious RoSPA occupational Health & Safety awards in 2010. The GOLD award was presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.
David Rawlins, RoSPA Awards Manager, said: "Wynne Construction has yet again shown a commitment to protecting the health and well-being of its employees and others. Organisations which do this deserve to have such dedication recognised and that's where the RoSPA Awards come in.
As well as there being clear ethical reasons and legal requirements for good health and safety management, there is also a strong business case. RoSPA is delighted to publicly honour organisations which have demonstrated their work to improve performance in this sphere."
Chris Wynne, Managing Director said: "We are delighted to have won this award for a fourth time and to receive recognition with a Gold RoSPA award. Health and safety is crucial to every construction firm and winning this award is a testament to our company's Health & Safety ethos and the enthusiasm of all our staff who place Health and Safety high on the list of priorities for every project."
The RoSPA awards are not just about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work; they help to ensure that organisations have good health and safety management systems in place. Through entering the awards clearly demonstrates an organisation's dedication to the achievement of high levels of performance in this crucial area.
Following the recent award of ISO 9001:2008 quality standard, Wynne Construction are now currently working towards ISO 18001 which promotes a healthy and safe working environment, and ISO 14001 which is an internationally accepted standard setting out how to implement an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).
