United Living awarded seventh consecutive RoSPA Gold Medal award
United Living’s commitment to exceptional health and safety standards has been recognised with a seventh consecutive Gold Medal Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Established in 1956, the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practice.
Entries are received from organisations worldwide, recognising achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. United Living Group will be presented with the award during a virtual awards ceremony on 9th September 2021.
The award is for health and safety performance from 1st January 2020 to 31st December 2020.
Tony Leach, Group Director of SHEQ, United Living Group, said: “I am delighted that United Living’s health and safety performance have been recognised yet again by RoSPA for the seventh consecutive year. This award reflects the hard work and dedication that all of our teams put in daily and an even more significant achievement to receive throughout what has been a challenging year with Covid.
“Congratulations to everyone involved in highlighting our safety performance and ensuring that our benchmark expectations receive such prestigious recognition.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“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. 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 every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering, they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world.
“Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
