Keyline, the UK's leading specialist supplier of civils and drainage solutions and heavy building materials has won a RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Award. The company received a gold award after being applauded for its high health and safety standards during the past 12 months.
Keyline received praise for the role its directors and senior managers played in defining a health and safety strategy, which relied heavily on colleague engagement and ensuring all colleagues were involved in the safety decision making process. The company illustrated how it uses risk assessment to identify appropriate control measures for significant risks to health and safety, ensuring that results are integrated effectively into business processes.
Richard Byrne, Safety Director at Keyline, said: “We were keen to celebrate safety success and these awards help us to underline the fact that we are achieving great results. Our obligation to health and safety extends to our colleagues, the contractors we employ, our customers, stakeholders that we work with, and members of the public. We are extremely proud that this effort has been acknowledged by RoSPA.”
2016 marks the 60th anniversary of the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards. For six decades the scheme has been recognising and celebrating excellence in safety performance – longer than any other in the industry. The judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and colleague involvement.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards and Events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
