SQS wins RoSPA accolade

Stanmore Quality Surfacing Ltd, based in London, has fought off stiff international competition to scoop a prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence. 

Stanmore Quality Surfacing Ltd won a Gold Award for the seventh consecutive year in the Health and Safety Performance and Management category, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff / customers / clients / contractors get home safely at the end of every working day. 

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.  

While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management. 

John Brennan, SHEQ Director said: “For SQS to receive an accolade like this from RoSPA on 7 successive occasions is testament to the dedication and professionalism of  our delivery teams, the commitment of top management to create a safe working environment for all and the efficacy of the company’s internal support mechanisms.” 

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: 

“Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded. 

“We are thrilled that Stanmore Quality Surfacing Ltd has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.” 

Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
