Vertas Group is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.
Vertas Group has been awarded the RoSPA Highly Commended in the Facilities Management Sector Award for working hard to ensure its colleagues and clients get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
Kelly Fellowes, Associate Director, HSQE Compliance & Governance, said: “Achieving RoSPA’s Highly Commended Award within the Facilities Management Industry Sector category is a huge achievement and highlights the continued commitment to developing Health, Safety and Wellbeing across the Group.
“The HSQE Compliance and Governance team are dedicated in continuously improving health, safety and wellbeing for all colleagues and customers. This is an award that every team and colleague should be proud of, as this is real recognition of their commitment to working safely at all times, as well as supporting the positive health and safety culture across the Group.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
