Ogilvie Construction has been recognised for outstanding commitment to health and safety excellence with the RoSPA Presidents Award, which is only given to companies who achieve 10 consecutive annual RoSPA Gold awards.
The unique accolade is recognition for Ogilvie’s dedication to ensuring that its staff get home safely at the end of every working day.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to have won his award, now for the 10th year in a row. It is recognition for the dedication and hard work of everyone in the business in maintaining the highest standards of health and safety across our operations. Every day we put safety at the heart of everything that we do.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that Ogilvie Construction has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
