Knottingley-based Caddick Construction has been successful in this year’s 60th Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
The family owned construction and civil engineering company has achieved the President’s Award in the prestigious annual scheme.
Organisations qualify for a ‘President’s Award’ by achieving Gold Awards in consecutive years. This award marks Caddick Construction’s 13th Gold Award.
Caddick Construction will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, in July, as RoSPA marks its diamond anniversary.
Pauline Shiell, health and safety officer at Caddick Construction, said: “We are so pleased to have been given the honour of a President’s Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016.
“At Caddick Construction we’re committed to up holding high standards on every project, demonstrating our full commitment to health and safety. We also provide education to schools and local communities regarding health and safety. It’s fantastic that we have been commended for our passion to provide the best health and safety practice in the industry.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of Awards and Events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
