OGILVIE Construction has received a Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in this year’s Occupational Health & Safety Awards.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of health and safety across every area of our operations. We are delighted to receive this award, which recognises that safety is at the heart of everything that we do.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said, “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Ogilvie Construction Ltd, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group, one of Scotland’s most consistently successful family owned businesses. The company is over 60 years old and employs over 400 people across its various business operations.
