Clifford Devlin’s gold standard for health & safety officially recognised by RoSPA

London-based, multi-trade contractor Clifford Devlin has been awarded an eleventh Gold Award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) at its 2019 Occupational Health & Safety Management Awards.

The RoSPA Achievement award involves submitting details and evidence of various health & safety activity from planning and employee training and competence to workforce engagement, risk assessment, active and reactive monitoring and any corporate initiatives undertaken throughout the previous 12 months.

Clifford Devin’s Health & Safety Manager, Ian O’Connor commented:
“Our eleventh Gold Award demonstrates that our corporate commitment to embed health and safety into the fabric of the company is much more than just lip service or a glib marketing message. The investment and effort required to continuously implement the activities against which the RoPSA Achievement Award is measured is proof that Clifford Devlin takes its obligations to maintain the safety of our staff, other contactors and anyone affected by our works seriously.”

The award was officially presented at a ceremony at ExCeL, London on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

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 internationally recognised RoSPA Health and Safety Awards scheme is the world’s longest-running health and safety awards initiative, having launched in 1956. It attracts nearly 2,000 entries every year from organisations around the world and across a range of industry sectors. Split across four dates and three cities, the RoSPA Awards offers non-competitive Achievement Awards, which are attained at Bronze, Silver or Gold level depending on the quality of the entry.
