“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 PROjEN 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.”
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 its second President’s award in recognition of our 11th consecutive gold award”
