Norse Commercial Services awarded RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety practices for fourth year running
Norse Commercial Services has been awarded the prestigious RoSPA GOLD award for the fourth year running in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its staff, customers and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards are the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. They receive entries from organisations around the world and recognise achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Members of the SHEQ team were presented with the award during a ceremony at Excel London this month led by Roger Smith, Head of Health and Safety, pictured second left.
The team had an opportunity to visit the Safety and Health Expo and see what new services and products are available to help organisations improve their workplace health and safety.
Norse’s Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) Director, Jamie McDonald, said: “The initiatives that have already been implemented around protecting the long-term health of our colleagues up and down the country will continue to be built on.
“Everyone deserves to be kept safe at work and go home at the end of the day. In addition, we will strongly support safety in the home as all too often more accidents happen at home than in the workplace. Every person within Norse contributes to this award by working safely on a daily basis.”
“It is our aim to expand the award recognition for 2020 to incorporate all parts of the Group and make the Norse Group a Gold award recipient.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar and offer organisations a prime opportunity to prove their ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards.”
