RoSPA gold award for fourth year running

by Brian Sims

For the fourth year running, McArthurGlen has been presented with the Gold level health and safety award by UK-based safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (Rospa). Part of the Rospa Occupational Health and Safety Awards, it was presented on 16 May at a ceremony at the National Exhibition Centre. The awards scheme dates back 57 years and is claimed to be the longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. The scheme recognises commitment to accident and ill-health prevention, and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes, both national and international. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. David Rawlins, Rospa’s Awards Manager, stated, ‘Rospa firmly believes that organisations which demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention deserve recognition. McArthurGlen Group has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.’ David Norris, Operations Director at McArthurGlen Group, added, ‘This is a great honour to receive such a prestigious award. At McArthurGlen, we are committed to providing the best possible shopping environment. Safety is a key issue, and we are committed to continuously improving our standards.’
