David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards Manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Substation Engineering Services Limited has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non –competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellent in specific areas, such as the management of occupational road risk.

The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body. Three days of award ceremonies and three gala evening dinners will be held in Birmingham from May 17-19, alongside Safety & Health Expo 2011. Europe’s leading annual health and safety exhibition. Well done to all involved from SES in achieving this award.
