For the third year in a row MGF are delighted to be amongst the winners in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2016, collecting a further Gold Award.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) run the prestigious annual awards scheme and MGF will be presented with our Gold Award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, on 13th July 2016.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 60 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations 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.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.”
Jenny Hodgkiss, Director of Support Services commented “MGF are proud to operate a robust health, safety, quality and environmental management system which is leading the way in terms of best practice for occupational health and safety. To be honoured with the RoSPA Gold Award 2016, our third in a row, is testimony to our work force who are committed to continually improving and innovating the health and safety systems and procedures within MGF”
This was MGF’s third year of entering the RoSPA Achievement Awards and as such our application needed to demonstrate our continual innovation and dedication to the improvement of occupational health and safety.
