RoSPA accreditation success for Morris & Spottiswood and Livingston Building Services
Morris & Spottiswood has demonstrated its commitment to health and safety excellence by achieving two prestigious RoSPA Awards, with Livingston Building Services achieving its first.

Livingston Building Services, with key offices in Livingston and Leeds, was awarded Silver.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Morris & Spottiswood CEO Jon Dunwell said: “We are very proud of this achievement where RoSPA recognise those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Our 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 each day.”
Livingston Building Services CEO Jon Dunwell added: “We are delighted to have achieved our first RoSPA Award.
“Health and safety is our number one concern and we work tirelessly to achieve safe working conditions for staff, supply chain partners and clients, as well as members of the public who may come into contact with our activities. There are always improvements that can be made and we’re committed to a process of continual improvement to ensure our work environments are as safe as possible.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that Livingston Building Services has achieved its first RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
