Watford Community Housing Trust receives recognition for its dedication to safety
Watford Community Housing Trust has proven its commitment to safety for a second year in a row by achieving the Silver award in an annual scheme run by the family and workplace safety charity the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The awards scheme, which is open to organisations of all types and sizes in the UK, focuses on rewarding health and safety management systems which go above and beyond standard requirements. Looking at staff training, leadership, workforce involvement and the way digital systems record accidents, the award entry asks for written evidence that the organisation is meeting high standards of accident-prevention procedures.
Paul Schofield, Watford Community Housing Trust’s Health and Safety Business Partner, said: “We’re really proud to have achieved the RoSPA Silver award for the second year. To receive an award which is recognised around the world is a testament to the ever-improving health and safety systems we use in our organisation, and to the engagement of all our staff in working to make our offices, our homes and our development sites safe for use.”
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.
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
