Robertson receives three RoSPA Awards, including the President’s Award for health and safety achievements
Robertson has been recognised across its Facilities Management and Construction businesses in the internationally renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards.
Robertson Facilities Management (RFM), Robertson Construction South and Robertson Construction North, have all been recognised for health & safety performance during the period of January 01, 2020, to December 31, 2020. In a year that saw all operations directly impacted by the pandemic and when new Covid Safe Operating Procedures were introduced, the awards demonstrate the team's commitment to retain the highest of standards, and the importance placed on employee, customer, supply chain and local community health and safety.
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 accolades in the UK's longest running Health & Safety industry awards.
RFM received the President's Award (11th consecutive Gold), while Construction North and Construction South received Gold and Silver respectively.
Brian McQuade, chief operating officer, Robertson Group, said: "We are incredibly proud of the FM and Construction businesses for achieving such notable awards in this years' RoSPA Awards. RFM have retained the President's Award in recognition of 11 years of consecutive Gold awards, and in the first year that our construction businesses have entered the awards, they too have received high accolades.
"These awards recognise the practices and achievements of the businesses and the priority placed on ensuring all of our employees, customers, supply chain and the local communities where we work and provide services, go home safe at the end of each working day."
Julia Small, RoSPA's achievements director, said: "The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.
"RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with these awards we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace. Employees, wherever they may be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme's global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year."
