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.
