FPL WINS RoSPA GOLD FOR SECOND YEAR
Fire-resistant ductwork systems manufacturer, Fire Protection Ltd (FPL), has won the prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Gold Award for the second year in succession.
This year's award was presented to Ian Davidson of FPL, at a special ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Birmingham and comes after the company had won three successive RoSPA Silver Awards between 2007 and 2009.
RoSPA launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also the entrant's over-arching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
The RoSPA Gold Award typically involves entrants demonstrating excellent occupational health & safety management systems and culture, a rigorous approach to occupational health and high levels of compliance, with control measures for principal risks, below average and reducing rates of error, harm and loss, as well as no fatal or major injuries due to employer negligence and no significant enforcement issues.
David Rawlins, RoSPA's awards manager commented "Fire Protection Limited has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well-being of its employees and others. Organisations that set and achieve such targets deserve to be recognised and that's where the RoSPA Awards come in".
FPL Director, Alan Kinnear, praised the staff's endeavors. "Winning this award is the result of much hard work and is a fitting recognition for all the effort involved".
