Press Release | Success for Nuvia in the RoSPA Awards 2013

Nuvia has again been recognised for its approach to occupational safety and health by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

For the second year running Nuvia has received The Order of Distinction for 16 consecutive years of Gold standard safety. Nuvia will receive its RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Award in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, at the National Exhibition Centre, on Tuesday May 14, 2013.

Dating back 57 years, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. Nuvia has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

Mike Lewis, Head of Assurance for Nuvia, said: “Our second Order of Distinction Award marks another milestone on our accident prevention journey. The award is testament to the hard work and commitment of all our people to achieving the health and safety goals set out by the Company. It is particularly important to remember that this award is not given simply as recognition for our excellent safety record but is primarily for the proactive approach Nuvia takes on health and safety, and for our strategic commitment to achieving our health and safety goals.”

The majority of awards that RoSPA presents are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Nuvia is delighted to have received the highest possible recognition for the second year running.

Three days of award ceremonies and three banquets will be held in Birmingham from May 14-16, alongside Safety and Health Expo 2013, which is Europe’s leading annual health and safety exhibition. An award ceremony and gala dinner will also take place in Glasgow on September 19. See www.rospa.com/awards/ for more information about the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards.
