Cwmbran Centre Wins President’s Award in the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards
Over the past 100 years, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has been working hard to change both legislation and attitudes surrounding accidents. Working on a number of campaigns such as the compulsory wearing of seatbelts, the appeal to stop people from drink driving and the more recent ban on handheld mobile phones behind the wheel, RoSPA has been instrumental in shaping our society for the better, preventing millions of deaths and serious injuries along the way.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards have become the most prominent fixture in the health and safety calendar for they offer organisations a prime opportunity to prove their ongoing commitment to raising health and safety standards.
The scheme, which has the longest-running industry awards in the UK, is non-competitive and is based on the organisation’s individual occupational health and safety performance assessed against the judging criteria. They mark an achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels.
Cwmbran Centre has been honoured its eleventh consecutive gold award for its outstanding performance during the period of January 01, 2018 to December 31, 2018. Eleven consecutive gold awards meant that the Centre was presented with a special President’s Award, which is only given to organisations which have achieved 10-14 consecutive golds.
Cwmbran Centre Manager, Rikki Teml, said “We are delighted to have been awarded our eleventh consecutive gold award in the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards! We continue to work hard every day to ensure both customers and staff are in a safe environment, so it is great to see that our hard work and effort has paid off.”
