A host facilities management companies were among the biggest winners at this year’s RoSPA Health and Safety Awards – and with only a few weeks left until the deadline for the 2018 Awards, next year’s potential winners are being urged to get their entries in soon.
Among the biggest winners this year was EMCOR UK at AWE, which picked up the winner’s title in the Facilities Management Sector, while Kier Workplace Services and Cumbria Collaboration Contract Part of Mitie were both commended in the same sector.
Meanwhile, Interserve Commercial and BT Facilities Services Ltd were each handed a President’s Award for achieving 11 consecutive Gold awards.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “We’ve had a fantastic awards season in 2017, RoSPA’s centenary year, with nearly 2,000 entrants from across a range of sectors, including facilities management.
“Our winners demonstrate their commitment to the safety of their staff, students and visitors, while the application process allows them to strengthen their health and safety policies and procedures. We are hoping for an even bigger and better year in 2018, and for the first time, a RoSPA Awards application will count towards the health and safety professional’s CPD.”
Registration is open for 2018, with the awards being presented next year in London on June 19, Birmingham on July 4 and 5, and Glasgow on September 13.
