GMI Construction Group PLC, which has offices in Leeds and Manchester, has been handed a prestigious award in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
GMI Construction Group PLC has achieved a Gold Medal (eight consecutive Golds) in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
They will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
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.
Andy Bruce, Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have been awarded our eighth Gold Medal in this year’s RoSPA awards. Maintaining exceptional standards of health and safety is of particular importance to us, and I would like to thank everyone involved in helping us achieve this accreditation including the site teams and our subcontractors.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
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.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
