Firm scoops award following 15 years of health and safety excellence

CLARK Contracts has been recognised following 15 years of continued health and safety excellence.

An Order of Distinction was awarded to the firm in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)’s Health and Safety Awards 2021.

In order to receive the award, firms must demonstrate excellent occupational health and safety management systems, a rigorous approach to occupational health, a continued high level of performance and compliance with control measures – with it being awarded to companies which have achieved 15 or more consecutive gold medal awards from RoSPA.

Gordon Cunningham, MD of Clark Contracts, said, “We are committed to continually improving health and safety performance throughout the company, and this recognition from one of the most highly respected occupational awards for a 15th consecutive year reinforces this commitment. We are extremely proud to be receiving our Order of Distinction this year, particularly after the challenges of the last year.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, added, “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 this award 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 should 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. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.”
