RoSPA Safety Award 2012

04.04.2012

McPhillips has been recognised for excellence in its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health through the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012. The Order of Distinction will be presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 and is recognition for 15 consecutive annual Gold awards.

McPhillips Joint Managing Director, Nicholas McPhillips, commented “the fact that RoSPA has chosen to recognise our efforts in health and safety is immensely gratifying and is a reflection of the priority we give to the protection of our employees and the public across all our activities.”
 
In recent years McPhillips has gained OHSAS 18001:2007 certification for its Safety Management System and continues to hold CHAS and NHBC Safemark accreditations.
 
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), a safety charity with a 95-year history, 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 McPhillips (Wellington) Limited 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.”
