Cavendish Nuclear has successfully achieved the prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) President’s Award.
The President’s Award is only given to companies which have won 10 RoSPA Gold Awards in succession; one a year for each of the last 10 years. Each Gold Award requires demonstrating a very high level of performance, well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss. In addition, the company has also achieved the RoSPA Gold Medal Fleet Safety Award (7 consecutive Golds), which recognises an effective, cohesive corporate road risk management programme following RoSPA’s Managing Occupational Road Risk (MORRTM) principles to manage our greatest risk – driving.
Paul Unsworth, Security, Health, Environment, Quality and Radiation Protection (SSHEQR) Director said, “These awards are testimony to everyone in our business being People Who Do The Right Thing to ensure continued excellence in health, safety and welfare in everything we do. I would like to thank everyone in our business for their engagement and involvement in achieving these awards.”
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards are internationally-renowned and the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practices and are recognised for their achievement in health and safety management systems and performance, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
