Norse Commercial Services awarded Gold in the RoSPA Awards 2016
Norse Commercial Services has achieved the Gold Award in the 2016 Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
The company won the Gold Award in the ‘Achievement Awards’ category, at the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The awards, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels, are non-competitive and are based on the organisation's individual occupational health and safety performance, assessed against the judging criteria.
Entrants must provide evidence of a good health and safety management system by answering key performance questions and supporting the answers with a concise portfolio of relevant documentation.
Simon Toseland, Head of Health and Safety at Norse said: “At Norse health and safety is firmly embedded in our employment and work place ethos, and in our practices and procedures. It is one of the reasons why the company boasts a 97% retention rate amongst our 8,000-plus staff across the UK.”
“To be awarded RoSPA GOLD with Norse has got to be one of my proudest achievements to date. It was a real team effort and testament to the progress made on our health and safety journey.”
The scheme 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.”
Norse will be presented with the award during a ceremony at the ExCeL, London, on June 21, 2016. Winners receive a framed certificate and are entitled to use the award logo on their organisation's letterhead and website and to fly the RoSPA Awards flag.
