In recognition of continuous improvement and achieving its ‘Zero Harm’ vision, STANLEY Security has been presented with the Gold Award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
STANLEY Security was selected as a Gold Award winner based on its Health and Safety documentation which proves the company takes note of incidences and then makes improvements to Health and Safety practices based on them.
The RoSPA Awards are highly-respected in the Health and Safety arena, with 2,000 entrants every year from organisations which have proven continual excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the well-being of not only employees, but all those who interact with them.
The Judging Panel for 2018 comprised of independent Health and Safety representatives from the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), Manchester and Aston Universities, the Engineering Construction Industry Association, RoSPA itself, Southern Water, the Unite Trade Union and Sainsbury’s.
Peter Walker, EHS manager for STANLEY Security, said: “It’s pleasing to know that our hard work and the dedication that we display towards Health and Safety is taken seriously not just by individuals from within STANLEY Security, but also renowned peers who have chosen to shine a light on our efforts as well. STANLEY Security has always made Health and Safety a key priority within the organisation and in regards to our customers as well.”
Walker went on to state: “Our RoSPA Gold Award win is not just cause for celebration for the hard work that we invest in maintaining our Health and Safety. It’s also an active opportunity to prove to our large and small clients alike our expertise and capabilities in the Health and Safety arena. We actively encourage a specific culture within STANLEY Security so colleagues know that our Health and Safety procedures and regulations have been put in place for their benefit.”
Building on its win, STANLEY Security is practising Hazard Reporting and Near Miss Reporting such that accidents are not only dealt with once they occur, but also so the causes of accidents are identified and eliminated to help prevent them from happening again. The practice comprises an assessment to identify potential hazards which may be both subtle and varied in nature.
