Churchill receives RoSPA Gold Medal for health and safety achievements

We are pleased to announce that we have received a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Medal. The Gold Medal is awarded to organisations that have received the RoSPA Gold Award for five – nine consecutive years; this year marks our 7th consecutive Gold Award.

Key criteria that the judges evaluate includes:

  • Day-to-day H&S systems and policies
  • Senior leadership involvement
  • Workforce involvement and consultation
  • Accident investigation and remediation
  • Enforcement records

We won the internationally recognised award for our exemplary health and safety standards during the 2022 calendar year. The Gold Medal is testament to our consistently high health and safety standards over the last seven years that have been achieved across a variety of disciplines and sectors.

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Amanda Lenehan, our head of QHSE, said: “RoSPA sets a high bar to win a Gold Award, so we’re delighted to have won for a seventh consecutive year. We take pride in providing a safe and secure workplace for our employees and customers. This award is testament to those objectives and we look forward to aiming for an eight Gold Medal next year.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded. We are thrilled that Churchill has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”

Three RoSPA Awards ceremonies will take place next month, in Dubai, London and Glasgow.
