LSHP achieves RoSPA Gold Award for fifth year running
Liverpool & Sefton Health Partnership Ltd has been awarded the RoSPA Gold Medal (5 consecutive Golds) Award.
The Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme is run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2016, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Liverpool & Sefton Health Partnership Ltd, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Chair of Liverpool and Sefton Health Partnership, Humphrey Claxton said: “This is a great achievement. We take health and safety very seriously at LSHP and it is reassuring to have external confirmation that we are managing it well year after year. Congratulations to everyone involved”.
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction.
