Compass Group UK & Ireland was celebrating recently after four of its sectors were recognised with gold awards at the annual RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Health and Safety Awards 2019. Each sector was awarded for its approach to the management of occupational health and safety in the prestigious annual scheme run by the accident prevention charity. The official awards ceremony is to be held at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on 6th June.
The gold awards have been achieved for an impressive tenth consecutive year for Compass’s ESS defence business and Chartwells, its education business. The healthcare division received a gold award for the ninth successive year, Instore division for the eighth, and Levy UK scored gold for a fourth year in a row.
Mark Armstrong, HSE and technical services director for Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “It is such a huge achievement for our four sectors who entered the awards to have come away with gold. Health and safety is our number one priority and these awards recognise the great work of our HSE teams to ensure we have robust practices and procedures in place to keep our employees, customers and clients safe.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, added: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year, including the Leisure Safety Awards, the [email protected] [email protected] Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.
