A Yorkshire-based company which specialises in the design and manufacture of permanent offsite buildings has been recognised for its commitment to health and safety by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Roan Building Solutions – part of the Siteserv group – has a won a gold award in the annual scheme run by RoSPA.
The award will be presented during a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow on September 17 this year.
The largest and longest-running programme of its kind, the RoSPA Awards scheme recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention/reduction and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas.
The scheme assesses accident records as well as entrants’ health and safety management including important factors such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
Matthew Goff, UK sales director at Roan, said:
“Health and safety remains at the forefront of offsite build and it is an engrained value within the business.
“Many of our clients require buildings to be erected in areas where there may be children and members of the community close by, so procedures need to be rigorous to ensure everyone is safe at all times.
“A client’s specification may change but our values don’t and health and safety is never compromised.
“We have a highly trained team to ensure we remain fully compliant which is part of our commitment to deliver a world-class service.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels.
Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors and they also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said:
“The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board.
“Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Roan Building Solutions contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
