This month we are celebrating after landing our first ever internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
We have been awarded with a RoSPA Silver Health and Safety Award which acknowledges the work and procedures we have in place to ensure our staff and contractors get home safely at the end of each working day.
Whilst this is the first year that we have put ourselves forward for a RoSPA our SHEQ and Security Manager, Wayne Griffiths has been working hard since he joined in 2017 to ensure our sites follow all necessary measures and we are continually setting ourselves new targets to improve our own standards.
We are proud to be able to report more than five million man-hours have been worked since we had the last reportable accident.
Of winning the award, Wayne said: “With RoSPA being the most prestigious health & safety awards in the world it was the obvious choice to gain external recognition to LCA and the employees of whom without their efforts wouldn't make this award possible.”
“I feel very strongly about providing individuals with positive feedback and empowering them to promote a positive health & safety culture across the board. Winning this award is a chance to give something back to the team for their continued support to drive a positive health & safety culture.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, quoted:
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace.
Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world.
Currently, around seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year."
Well done to Wayne and the team for this excellent award, keep up the good work and may this be the first RoSPA of many to come.
