Double RoSPA health and safety award success for CBES
Construction and engineering firm City Building Engineering Services (CBES) has received two prestigious awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The awards were given in recognition of its practises and achievements in ensuring its colleagues, customers and general public get home safely at the end of the working day.
CBES has achieved a President’s Award in recognition of 12 consecutive Gold Awards and a Fleet Safety Gold Award. The contractor’s sixth consecutive Gold, for the management of occupational road risk, in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Central on September 12.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Fraser Allan, CBES managing director, said: “We’re delighted with our most recent awards win from RoSPA, which builds upon 12 years of outstanding H&S performance. CBES has been recognised time and time again for outstanding efforts in ensuring our colleagues go home safely each day. Safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues is a key value of our business and for this to be recognised via the RoSPA awards is testament to our commitment and values.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
