Wynne Construction has attained a Gold Medal in the prestigious 2011 RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards. Gold Medals are given to companies who have attained RoSPA Gold Awards for five consecutive years. Wynne Construction was presented with its Gold Medal by Mike Parker CBE, Trustee of RoSPA at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on 18 May, 2011.
A safety charity, RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents), launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants' health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA's Awards Manager, said: "RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Wynne Construction 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."
Chris Wynne, Managing Director said: "We are delighted to have won a RoSPA Gold Medal. Health and safety is crucial to every construction firm, and winning five consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards, culminating in a Gold Medal, is a testament to our company's health and safety ethos and the commitment of all our staff who place health and safety high on the list of priorities for every project."
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.
