Date: 25 Jun 2019
Bright Horizons Family Solutions has been announced as a recipient of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Medal Award for the eighth consecutive year.
The award recognises the organisation’s practices and achievements in helping its staff, customers and clients get home safely at the end of the working day and was presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday 6th June. Bright Horizons’ Head of Health and Safety Mark Walker received the award on the organisation’s behalf.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
“We are delighted to receive this prestigious award for the eighth consecutive year,” Walker said. “Keeping Everyone Safe is our number one priority throughout the business and this award highlights once more our continued commitment to safety and safe practice each and every day.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “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 Safe@Work Safe@Home 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.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
