Ainscough Crane Hire’s commitment to health and safety practices has been recognised with a prestigious silver award from the internationally renowned Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The award acknowledges the company’s commitment to helping its employees, customers and contractors get home safely at the end of the working day.
RoSPA’s Health and Safety Awards is the longest-running annual industry awards scheme in the UK, with awards given to companies that demonstrate and maintain the highest standards of safety and management systems, including leadership and workforce involvement.
Dave Berry, Group QHSE Manager at Ainscough said: “The achievement of this award is tangible evidence that Ainscough have lifted the standards of safety within the business.
“Our approach is only the start of our journey; this is a long term commitment to reducing risk and increasing the awareness of what we can all do to help make our working environment safer for team members, our customers and the general public.
“Simply put, it means that at Ainscough we always follow a “Safe System of Work” and, if we are in any doubt what that means, we STOP and “Make the Safe Choice”.”
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.”
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2018 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 13th consecutive year.
