Chubb Systems has received a Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the fourth consecutive year, while Chubb Fire & Security received the Gold Award for the first time following its Silver Award in 2015.

RoSPA Gold Award winners are recognised for achieving a high level of performance while demonstrating well developed occupational Health and Safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.

Mark Redding, head of EH&S at Chubb Fire & Security and Chubb Systems, accepted the awards on behalf of the organisation alongside Nichola Maher of Chubb Systems. The RoSPA awards highlight Chubb’s commitment to occupational Health and Safety and recognise the extensive lengths to which Chubb goes in order to protect employees.

“We ensure that every Chubb employee is working in the safest of conditions, and that our occupational Health and Safety approach is at the very heart of everything we do,” said Redding. “The two Gold Awards are a tribute to the value we place on employee welfare.”

RoSPA has been campaigning to prevent accidents, save lives and reduce injuries for 100 years. Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, commented: “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 towards maintaining an excellent Health and Safety record and raises the bar for other organisations. We offer them our congratulations.”

RoSPA’s Occupational Health and Safety Awards are known on the international stage. This year, they took place at Safety & Health Expo, which ran at London’s ExCeL from 21-23 June.

By achieving a RoSPA Award, an organisation is proving its ongoing commitment towards maintaining a well-balanced approach on Health and Safety management, as well as demonstrating superior practices in areas such as leadership and workplace contribution.
