RoSPA Order of Distinction 2016

The RoSPA Awards are celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Through the 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.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: "To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.

"This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention."

Peter Elton, Managing Director at HARMAN technology, said: "HS&E is at the heart of HARMAN technology. The safety and wellbeing of our people is our number one priority and to achieve an Order of Distinction for achieving 25 consecutive years of outstanding HS&E performance is testament to the people, systems and processes we have in place. There are not many companies to have reached this 25-year milestone and so we are all justifiably proud."
