Wynne Construction awarded RoSPA Gold Medal for the sixth consecutive year. Wynne Construction has once again had its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health recognised in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012.
Chris Wynne and Glyn Hughes were presented with the prestigious RoSPA Gold Medal by Mike Parker, RoSPA Trustee, at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Wednesday, May 16, 2012. This will be the company's sixth consecutive Gold Award.
Dating back to 1956, the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It 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. The scheme 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) 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 Wynne Construction 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."
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 six consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards, 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."
