Fifth consecutive RoSPA Gold for Konecranes
21 January 2021
LIFTING EQUIPMENT manufacturer and service provider, Konecranes UK, has been awarded a RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety for the fifth consecutive year. The company provides service for equipment originally manufactured by Konecranes and Demag.
The RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) Occupational Health & Safety Awards are recognised internationally and have fast become a sought-after accolade by organisations from every sector. Through the scheme, which is open to business entities of all types and sizes, from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Vic Little, UK HSE manager, says: "The award demonstrates an organisation's health and safety performance and commitment to excellent standards. It validates a great team effort by all departments and staff to continually strive to maintain our Health and Safety performance.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, states: "RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safely in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7 million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
