A long-standing commitment to health and safety excellence has earned the Woodville-based Greenbank Group a prestigious accolade from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

At an event in London this week, the specialist engineering firm was recognised for achieving a RoSPA Gold Medal for the 12th consecutive year with a coveted President’s Award.

Gold medals are awarded to businesses and other organisations for demonstrating their dedication to ensuring employees, contractors and other people they work with get home safely at the end of every working day.

President’s Awards are the highest accolades recipients can receive after striking gold for ten years or more in the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK.

Now into their 67th year, the RoSPA Awards see 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. They also look at overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Charles Conroy, Greenbank Managing Director, commented: “We’re delighted that RoSPA has once again recognised our efforts to set the very highest standards when it comes to health and safety at work while delivering our unique brand of engineering excellence,” he said.

“To receive no less than 12 Gold Medals in a row, and a second President’s Award, is a fantastic achievement and testament to the commitment of the entire Greenbank team for putting the wellbeing of colleagues, contractors and clients at the heart of our operations.”

“To strike gold yet again reflects the company’s core values that embed safety, excellence, and respect within every aspect of our business.”

While most RoSPA 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.

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 Greenbank has won another 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.
