Tilhill has been judged as Winner of the Agriculture, Forestry & Fishing Industry Sector Award for their health and safety performance during 2022. The win demonstrates the Company’s dedication to ensuring everyone it works with gets home safely at the end of every working day.
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.
While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
Of the win, Chris Pike, Tilhill’s Head of Safety and Assurance said:
“The Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing sector has the worst fatal accident rates of all sectors in HSE’s published figures. This makes it even more important that we strive to continually improve safety on our worksites. This Award is fantastic recognition of the efforts made by all our staff and contractors to make our safety ethos come alive on sites every day.”
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 Tilhill 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.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
