PROjEN are RoSPA gold medal winners 2006
PROjEN, the specialist Project Management Company has won one of the most prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards for 2006. PROjEN has been awarded the RoSPA Gold Medal which is only awarded to companies who have won at least five consecutive gold awards.
The Gold Medal award will be presented at a special ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, National Exhibition Centre on Thursday May 11 during Safety & Health Expo 2006, the UK’s premier health and safety at work exhibition.
David Rawlins, RoSPA awards manager said “PROjEN have demonstrated how seriously they take health and safety management and are a fine example to many other companies. We would like to see more organisations following PROjEN’s lead by providing a positive example”
John Taylor, Managing Director at PROjEN said, “We are extremely pleased to have won this award and proud of our achievement in winning this gold medal. We have made health and safety a priority at PROjEN and to receive such recognition for our efforts is fantastic. All the team at PROjEN are thrilled by this result.”
PROjEN has recently reached another safety milestone with the completion of over 80,000 working hours (equivalent to 45 working years) without a single health and safety incident at GlaxoSmithKline’s Research and Development facility at Stevenage. The latest project to contribute to these astonishing figures was the Condenser Replacement project which was completed in November 2005 – adding over 28,000 working man hours without an incident. The majority of the remaining safe hours of working came thanks to the R22 Replacement project recently completed at the same site.
The RoSPA awards are not just about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work; they are also about ensuring that organisations have good health and safety management systems in place. They help to reinforce the message that good health and safety is good business and clearly demonstrate an organisations commitment to the achievement of high levels of performance in this crucial area.
The President of RoSPA, Baroness Anne Gibson, Deputy President Lord Jordan and Vice-President Lord Brougham will host gala dinners on May 10th & 11th for representatives of award winning organisations at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, with the popular television personality Ronnie Corbett as guest speaker.
