BSS scores safety award

Published:  23 May, 2016

BSS has won an award in recognition of its contribution towards health and safety from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). RoSPA honoured the company with the Silver Achievement Award in its 2016 Health & Safety Awards.

BSS Safety director Richard Byrne said: “We were keen to celebrate safety success and this award helps us to underline the fact that we are achieving great results. Our obligation to health and safety extends to our workforce, the contractors we employ, stakeholders that we work with, and members of the public. We are extremely proud that this effort has been acknowledged by RoSPA.”

RoSPA praised the high health and safety standards at BSS during the past 12 months, singling out the effective leadership that its directors and senior managers play in defining the health and safety strategy, in addition to its integrated approach to health and safety management.

The RoSPA Health & Safety Awards 2016 marks the 60th anniversary of what is the UK’s longest scheme to recognise and celebrate excellence in safety performance. When judges assess entrants they consider all aspects of their occupational health and safety management systems, such as leadership and workforce involvement.
