Joseph Ash Galvanizing and the RoSPA Gold Medal Award
Joseph Ash Galvanizing has been handed a prestigious award - the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK - in recognition of our practices and achievements in helping our employees get home safely at the end of the working day.
We have won the Gold five years in a row (from 2014-2018) and we'll be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, July 5, 2018.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Mick Jackson, IT and Marketing Manager at Joseph Ash Galvanizing said: "Promoting health and safety and the prevention of accidents at work, at leisure, and on the road is a prime concern for Joseph Ash Galvanizing, so it's great to win this award five years in a row. We are pleased to be continually recognised for our efforts."
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2018 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 13th consecutive year.
