Clark Contracts has achieved 14 consecutive Gold Awards, resulting in the contractor being awarded their fifth consecutive President’s Award in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)’s Health and Safety Awards 2020.
To receive the President’s Award, Clark Contracts demonstrated excellent occupational health and safety management systems, a rigorous approach to occupational health, a continued high level of performance and compliance with control measures.
Gordon Cunningham, Managing Director, Clark Contracts, said “We are committed to continually improving health and safety performance throughout the company, and this recognition from one of the most highly respected occupational awards for a 14th consecutive year reinforces this commitment. We are extremely proud to be receiving our fifth President’s Award this year.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.
“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe 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 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”
RoSPA is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK Awards scheme, and involves judges considering entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The majority of awards 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.
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.
