The President’s award was presented to Dave Elliott, PROjEN’s Business Support Services Director, at a ceremony at held in the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, in May.
Dating back to 1956, the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, awards manager at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity with a 95-year history, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate PROjEN Plc on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”
Martin Seabrook, PROjEN’s Managing Director is delighted with PROjEN’s achievements. He said: “This award is testimony to PROjEN’s exceptional Health and Safety record and is a welcome recognition of the hard work that all our employees show in maintaining this high standard. Although anyone can talk about safety, I know it takes a lot of work and team effort to ensure everyone is involved in the process. I am delighted to see PROjEN gain its second President’s award in recognition of our 11th consecutive gold award.”
