Mildren Awarded RoSPA Gold Award for the 8th Consecutive Year
Based in Dorset, Mildren achieved the Gold Medal (8 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The award was achieved during the special centenary year for the family-safety charity.
Through the RoSPA Awards 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 practises such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Simon French, Managing Director, said: "Our HSEQ Manager, Richard Hardy and I recently attended a Buckingham Palace garden party hosted by Lord McKenzie of Luton, President of RoSPA. HRH The Duke of York attended as The Queen's representative and we were very honoured to be invited to such an auspicious occasion.
"RoSPA was originally formed to bring down the number of injuries caused by accidents and the awards scheme is now entering its sixty first year. The Society's awards scheme was set up to recognise the outstanding health and safety record of businesses and organisations from the UK and overseas.
"Mildren afford the highest priority to Health and Safety and we are therefore delighted to receive our 8th consecutive Gold Award" he said.
Julia Small, RoSPA's head of awards and events, said: "The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation's commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.
"This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year".
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president's awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years. For the first time in 2017, the Patron's Award has been presented to those organisations that have achieved consecutive gold awards for 25 years or more.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2017 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 12th consecutive year.
