Orbit has won two gold health & safety awards by RoSPA

Orbit has scooped double gold health and safety awards by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

This outstanding accolade endorses Orbit’s ongoing commitment to customer safety and best practice in compliance and comes just weeks after being announced as one of the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for in the not for profit sector.

Afzal Ismail, Group Corporate Services Director at Orbit, said: “These awards reaffirm all the hard work that our Health and Safety and Compliance teams put into the business, day in and day out. To get two gold awards from RoSPA in the same year is an amazing achievement within the housing association sector.”

The awards are:

  • Orbit - Customer Safety: RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety practices
  • Orbit - Health & Safety: RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety practices

 

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards receive entries from organisations around the world and recognise achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. It is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”

Orbit will be presented with the awards during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, June 6 2019. Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.
