Chevron have received their sixth Gold Medal in as many years in a prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The RoSPA Awards are for businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention. 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, “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.”
Christopher Rowley, Group HSE Manager, commented, “Being awarded Gold for six years in a row demonstrates the continued commitment and tremendous hard work from everyone at Chevron. We are very proud!”
Meanwhile Eurovia UK has been awarded the Order of Distinction (15 consecutive Golds) award and the Fleet Safety Gold award.David Campbell, Eurovia UK health, safety and environment director, said, “This is a fantastic achievement and reflects the hard work and effort put in from all of our employees across the business in making Eurovia UK a safe place to work. Achieving this level of award for 15 consecutive years shows our long-term ambition of ensuring everyone goes home safe each day.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
