C&R wins RoSPA President’s Award
Capital & Regional has again won an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
The RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award recognises excellence in workplace health & safety and has now been won by the group 15 consecutive times, 10 as C&R and five before that as The Mall. The prestigious President’s Award goes only to those organisations which achieve 10 consecutive golds, the highest available level.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Gold are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Kate Thursfield, National Guest Experience Manager for C&R said:
“I am absolutely delighted and proud that we have been awarded our 15th consecutive RoSPA gold award.
“2020 was a particularly challenging year for our centres all of which remained open for essential services throughout national lockdowns and local restrictions. Our teams worked tirelessly to ensure that the centres remained safe and compliant and that our guests, colleagues and retail customers felt reassured in such uncertain conditions. Whilst obtaining a gold award for 2020 feels extra special, we remain focussed on ensuring the highest possible safety standards throughout our schemes.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said:
“The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
