Phelan Construction Ltd has retained the prestigious GOLD RoSPA award for the second year in a row! The award is in recognition of Phelan’s practices and achievements in helping its staff and sub-contractors get home safely every day. The internationally-renowned RoSPA Awards is the longest-running Health and Safety industry awards scheme in the UK.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Scott Manton, SHE Director of Phelan Construction, said:
“We are incredibly proud to have maintained our RoSPA gold award status from last year. The Safety, Health and Environment department has continued to increase the industry best practice standards across all our sites nationwide with consistent communication and improved processes. This year, the department has grown in size, and a number of our team members are presently doing higher and further education courses, all in a bid to better support site teams with the latest best practice guidance.
We’re also proud of our “Phelan Fine” initiative, launched earlier in the year. It focuses in on promoting both physical and mental health among our supply chain and our direct labour force; which has been positively received. On behalf of the SHE department, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work and contribution towards achieving this prestigious award.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said:
“The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years. Phelans’ are now setting their sights for next year’s industry sector award and continuing towards the Patron’s award later on.
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 health at work, 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.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.
