CWind Ltd, of Colchester, has won a Gold Award for its occupational safety and health commitment in an awards scheme run by the safety charity, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The Gold award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2013 was presented to CWind’s SHEQ Manager, Gary Holland, at a ceremony in Birmingham yesterday.
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. CWind Ltd 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.”
Peter Jorgensen, Managing Director CWind, said: “We are extremely proud to have won Gold at this year’s ROSPA Awards. We achieved zero lost time incidents in over 800,000 man hours worked since the launch of CWind, so we know that our occupational health and safety management systems are working well. We are committed to maintaining our high health and safety standards and continuously improving in all areas of health and safety as the company grows. This award recognises the strength of our health and safety culture and commitment and is a great achievement for all of us – from our technicians and crew offshore to the senior management team.”
