The awards are non-competitive and are based on the company’s individual occupational health and safety performance, assessed against a rigorous judging criteria which includes having effective safety management systems and by answering key performance questions, supported by a portfolio of supporting evidence and documentation.

David Rawlins, awards manager at RoSPA, said: “The RoSPA Awards programme provides well-deserved recognition for the winners and spurs on other organisations to raise their standards of accident and ill health prevention. We congratulate EH Smith on its success once more and encourage them to remain committed to safety and health excellence.”
