4 May 2012
VWS (UK) Ltd has had its approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health recognised in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012. VWS (UK) Ltd is the registered name for Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, ELGA Process Water and ELGA LabWater.
The Gold Medal (9 consecutive Golds) award will be presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
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 VWS (UK) Ltd 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.”
Lyndsey Wicks, Health & Safety Manager for VWS (UK) Ltd said: “We are delighted to receive this award for the 9th consecutive year. It recognises our ongoing hard work, commitment and positive Health & Safety culture, to achieve the highest possible standards.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
Three days of award ceremonies and three gala evening dinners will be held in Birmingham from May 15-17, alongside Safety and Health Expo 2012, which is Europe’s leading annual health and safety exhibition. An award ceremony and gala dinner will also take place in Glasgow on September 20. See www.rospa.com/awards for more information about the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
