PM PROjEN is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
PM PROjEN has received its sixth RoSPA Order of Distinction, following twenty consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards for working hard to ensure its personnel, clients and sub-contractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety best practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, this Year’s Awards Ceremony will be held virtually on Thursday, September 9 at 13:00 BST.
Lyndon Workman, PM PROjEN’s Health, Safety & Environmental Manager, said:
“What seems like yesterday, I recall receiving our very first RoSPA Gold Award in 2002, and fondly remember making the journey to the Awards in Birmingham as we celebrated the company’s success with fellow RoSPA recipients.
Almost twenty years on, I look back at our journey from a small company operating out of a refurbished garage in Northwich, to the one today in modern surroundings offering excellent facilities to meet the demands of the modern world. As I reflect on the past, I cannot help but think how far we have come, and how the journey has had a few twist and turns along the way. Today we are part of a global family, PM Group, employing more than 3,100 people and the commitment from the top has never been clearer, especially through the pandemic when the need to protect our employees carried greater significance as we worked through the pandemic.
Winning awards are important to any business, especially prestigious awards such as the RoSPA Award. It not only acknowledges our commitment to Health and Safety excellence, but also helps to demonstrate a positive Health and Safety culture, a culture characterised by communications founded on mutual trust, by shared perceptions of the importance of safety and by confidence in the efficacy of preventive measures. Thanks then to everyone in the business for their help and support throughout the year in simply ‘doing the right thing’ when it comes to health and safety compliance. This is everyone’s award and we should all be proud of this achievement.
As we look to next year with the hope of some normality, let us hope that we can once again collect our awards in similar circumstances to the past and make that walk to the stage to collect our awards in person”.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said:
“The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“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 7million 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. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
