DBi Services picks up a prestigious RoSPA Award

DBi Services is a winner at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017.

The company achieved the Silver award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

DBi Services will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow hotel on Thursday, September 14, 2017. The award was achieved during a special year for family-safety charity RoSPA, as it celebrates its centenary.

Through the RoSPA Awards scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The awards are now in their 61st year.

Jim Dawson, HSQE Manager UK, said: “We are rightly proud that our efforts and achievements over the last 12 months have been recognised by RoSPA as we continue to drive improvements to our Safety, Health and Wellbeing commitment and performance. In such an important year for RoSPA in its centenary year, we are delighted that our first formal award submission has been so well received and we look forward to improving each year.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.

“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.

There are specialist awards for occupational health, 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 2017 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 12th consecutive year.
