Bagnalls, with its head office in Shipley, has been awarded a fifth consecutive Gold award for Occupational Health and Safety by the RoSPA Awards Adjudication Panel.
The Gold Medal, only given to companies who have achieved five consecutive gold awards, was presented to Andrew Naylor at the prestigious annual awards ceremony run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) on May 14, 2014.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
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 Bagnalls, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Stephen Bagnall, Managing Director, said: “Safety is a core value of the company and winning a Gold RoSPA award for five consecutive years is proof of our commitment to raising occupational health and safety standards in our business. We are particularly proud to have achieved Gold medal status this year.”
