SRL scoops RoSPA Silver Award for health and safety achievements
Here at SRL we’re celebrating landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards. The RoSPA Silver Award is a merit based award that recognises an organisation’s overall health and safety performance, policies and procedures.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, says:
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace.’
The first time for everything
Every year around 2,000 entrants strive to achieve recognition at RoSPA’s Health & Safety industry awards – the longest running in the UK. This year was the first time we’d entered, so we were absolutely over the moon to discover we’d been given the Sliver Award for health and safety achievements.
SRL CEO, Richard Tredwin could not be happier:
‘We are thrilled to have received the RoSPA Silver Award in our first year of entry. The Directors place significant emphasis on the health, safety, and well-being of our workforce. To receive this RoSPA award clearly demonstrates the commitment to continuous improvement across all facets of ESH&Q and we must set this significant achievement against the backdrop of the challenges to all brought by the pandemic over the last 12 months’
SRL’s covid-19 response
At SRL, our response was facilitated by our ESH&Q Manager, Mark Gordon and driven by the mantra, ‘do the right thing’. In the early days of the pandemic, we adopted strategies including daily briefings to staff, remote working (where possible) and thorough cleaning and sanitisation of equipment prior to sale/hire, which helped offset additional pressure on operations further down the line.
“I am extremely proud of SRL winning this prestigious silver award. At SRL we work tirelessly on continually enhancing our internal systems. The past 12 months have been challenging to say the least and the award shows how important it is to work in a proactively way towards health and safety. “
