Airwave has won Gold in the annual Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014 run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), which will be presented during a ceremony at ExCeL on 17 June 2014.
The RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise the commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Entrants are judged on their 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 the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Airwave, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Richard Bobbett, Airwave CEO, said, “We are delighted to learn that we’ve won gold as it recognises our commitment and dedication to service excellence. We work 365 days of the year to ensure that our service levels and standards surpass expectations and this would not be possible without the outstanding commitment from everyone at Airwave who plays their part in achieving this.”
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.
