RoSPA Award for VWS (UK) Ltd

Posted: Wednesday 29th June 2011

VWS (UK) Ltd has won a Gold Medal (8 consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011. VWS (UK) Ltd is the registered name for Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, ELGA Process Water and ELGA LabWater.

The Gold Medal award will be presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. VWS (UK) Ltd 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.”

Lyndsey Wicks, Health & Safety Manager for VWS (UK) Ltd said: “Health & Safety is always a high priority for our company and we are delighted to receive this award for the 8th consecutive year. It’s recognition of our hard work and we will continue to promote a positive Health & Safety culture within the organisation.”

The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.

Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellence in specific areas, such as the management of occupational road risk.

The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.

Three days of award ceremonies and three gala evening dinners will be held in Birmingham from May 17-19, alongside Safety & Health Expo 2011, Europe’s leading annual health and safety exhibition. An award ceremony and gala dinner will also take place in Glasgow in September.
