Derwent Facilities Management receives RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety achievements

Derwent Facilities Management based in Leeds, is celebrating after landing an internationally recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Derwent Facilities Management has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its colleagues and customers 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 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.

Anthony Vasey, Head of SHEQ at Derwent fm said: “We are absolutely delighted to win a gold RoSPA award. This award demonstrates our total commitment to health and safety and recognises the robust safety management system we have in place to ensure our colleagues and customers can be safe in the knowledge that we have excellent health and safety processes to protect them.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, 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 7 million 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.”
