Wynne Construction awarded RoSPA Gold Medal for the seventh 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 2013.
The Gold Medal (7 consecutive Golds) was presented to Chris Wynne and Glyn Hughes by Ian Bucknell, RoSPA Trustee in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on 15 May.
Dating back 57 years, the RoSPA 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 not only looks at accident records, but also entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA's awards manager, said: "RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate 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 seven 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."
