Moores receives 18th consecutive Gold from RoSPA for Order of Distinction
Moores has won the Order of Distinction Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. The company received the award which will proudly sit alongside 17 previous Awards from RoSPA at its headquarters in Wetherby.
Through the RoSPA Awards 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 & safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
"This is a fantastic achievement and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone for their contribution in achieving this award and for your continued support in making Moores a safe place to work," says Steve Parkin, CEO of Moores. "Winning the Order of Distinction Award is a significant milestone in our Health and Safety Journey and one that we are extremely proud to have achieved."
Julia Small, RoSPA's head of awards and events, says: "The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health & safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation's commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat".
RoSPA exists to save lives and reduce injuries from preventable accidents in the workplace. In 1993 the society introduced individual sector awards to be presented annually for the most outstanding performance in health and safety by a company or organisation within an industry or sector. Entrants must be able to demonstrate a robust and high-quality safety management system together with a minimum of four years' consistently excellent or continuously improving health and safety performance.
