ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems Ltd is a winner in the RoSPA Awards 2016

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems Ltd has been successful in the 60th year of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016. The company, based in Sheffield, achieved the Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants' overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce 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."

Rob Flinn, ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems UK Managing Director, said: "We are delighted to receive recognition for the continuous hard work invested in our safe working processes. Over the course of the past few years, our on-site and office teams have targeted a zero accident culture and this award demonstrates that our commitment to ever safer working is a priority across our business. The award is a great achievement, demonstrating to our colleagues and customers how highly we regard the health and safety of our employees, customers and anybody else who may be affected by our work."

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president's awards and orders of distinction 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 occupational health, 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.
