Barchester Healthcare’s Health and Safety team were delighted to collect a RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Health and Safety at an awards presentation held on 16th June at the ExCel, London.
This year was Barchester’s first attempt at entering the awards so the Health and Safety team, led by Director of Health and Safety Cath Dyson, were extremely proud to receive the Gold Award.
The RoSPA Awards promote the importance of occupational health and safety and acknowledge organisations that excel in this area. They are internationally recognised and have fast become the most sought after accolade by organisations from every sector.
RoSPA Gold Award winners have achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well-developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.
Cath Dyson, Director of Health and Safety at Barchester said: "My team and I were thrilled that Barchester was awarded Gold, and collecting the award was a very proud and exciting moment. Winning Gold on our first entry attempt clearly demonstrates the commitment of my team and the support from our senior management team who regard health and safety as a key management function.”
