PROjEN Ltd Celebrate winning the President’s Award

PROjEN, a specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire is celebrating winning the President’s Award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011.

The President’s Award (following 10 consecutive Golds) will be presented to PROjEN at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on Wednesday 18th May 2011.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager comments:

“RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. PROjEN 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.”

Martin Seabrook, PROjEN’s Managing Director is delighted with PROjEN’s achievements:

“This award is testimony to PROjEN’s exceptional Health and Safety record and is a welcome recognition of the hard work that all our employees show in maintaining this high standard. Although anyone can talk about safety I know it takes a lot of work and team effort to ensure everyone is involved in the process. I am delighted to see PROjEN gain this 10th consecutive award”.

The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organizations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.

Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellence in specific areas, such as the management of occupational road risk.

The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.

Three days of award ceremonies and three gala evening dinners will be held in Birmingham from 17th- 19th May, alongside Safety & Health Expo 2011, Europe’s leading annual health and safety exhibition.

PROjEN are proud to join the British Safety Council

PROjEN are delighted to announce that they are now a member of the British Safety Council and are registered to provide BSC Level 1 Awards in Health and Safety at Work, recently carrying out this training on behalf of GSK.

Making the workplace a safer environment is a key remit for everyone within PROjEN. The Company takes its commitment to Health and Safety very seriously, reviewing its policies, procedures and standards on a regular basis to ensure that the head office and various construction sites offer a safe environment for their employees, customers, suppliers and visitors. Evidence that this commitment works is shown by the Company’s nine consecutive RoSPA Gold Medal awards for Health & Safety performance.

The British Safety Council is one of the world’s leading independent authorities on health, safety and environmental sustainability and is seen as a further benchmark by which the Company can be measured. PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook is delighted with the Company’s success:

“I am delighted with PROjEN’s outstanding Health and Safety record which I believe is a welcome recognition of the hard work that has been made over recent years to raise the levels of Health and Safety across sites. This record, which includes zero reportable accidents to PROjEN’s personnel, is one of the factors why the Company has been successful in receiving the ROSPA Gold Medal award for the last nine years”.

PROjEN has a diverse client base which includes a substantial number of large blue chip organisations. The company’s record for client retention is exceptional and the outstanding Health and Safety record highlights PROjEN’s commitment to sustaining long-term business success with both their current and prospective clients.

Employees at PROjEN Ltd raise £810 for Local Charity

PROjEN, the specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire is proud to announce that employees have managed to raise £810 for charity through Christmas donations and a raffle during PROjEN’s Christmas party held on Friday 10th December 2010.

The money raised was donated to Halton Haven Hospice which provides a range of services aimed at supporting patients at different stages of their illness. Services include a day hospice, physiotherapy, complementary therapy and family support services. PROjEN have supported the Hospice throughout 2010 and will continue to do so in 2011, with the aim to build a ‘Woodland Walk’ for patients and families at the hospice.

PROjEN’s Christmas party was held for the benefit of the Company’s 100 strong personnel along with their guests and consisted of pre dinner drinks, a three course meal and a live band to finish. During the evening all guests contributed to a charity raffle with the prizes being presented by PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook.

PROjEN are always looking at ways to help raise funds for worthwhile causes and are delighted with the level of participation and enthusiasm that PROjEN’s employees demonstrate when doing so. PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook commented:

“It is fantastic to see the level of support and commitment everyone at PROjEN show when participating at fundraising events. It is great to see the money raised going to support such a worthwhile cause”.

In contrast to the much publicised economic gloom affecting many businesses PROjEN have raised a substantial amount of money over the last year and will continue to do so; supporting whatever charities and good causes that they can into 2011.
