RoSPA gold medal awarded for second yearPosted on 24/07/2015
A Norfolk company has been presented with a gold award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in the UK, for the second consecutive year.
Conductor Installation Services Ltd (CIS) was presented with the award as an acknowledgement of an excellent health and safety record. The company has continued to trade for 10 years, without any incidents resulting in lost time, or any accidents at work. CIS is celebrating its 10th anniversary, while being recognised for an outstanding commitment to safety in the workplace.
The award was presented to the group’s managing director, Andy Penman, by trustee of RoSPA, Michael D Parker CBE. The awards ceremony was held in London at ‘ExCeL London’ - an exhibition and convention centre found in Newham, London.
All entrants for the awards ceremony are scrutinised by RoSPA to look at the involvement of the workforce in safety practices, along with solid leadership at the company. The organisation also looks at the company's record of accidents and the management systems which have been put in place for the employees at the company. The managing director of CIS, Andy Penman, said:
“Nothing is more important than safety at CIS, and every person in the company has the responsibility to ensure that the workplace is safe, and to perform his or her job safely, each and every time.”
To be able to function in the workplace without accidents occurring, PPE (personal protective equipment) must be worn where necessary. Health and Safety procedures will help to keep employees safe and reduce the risk of accidents occurring.
