British bathroom products manufacturer scoops highest accolade for safety
Bathroom product specialist Aqualisa has been honoured with the RoSPA Gold Award, an internationally-recognised accolade for demonstrating the highest health and safety standards.
Every year, almost 2,000 entrants compete to achieve the top prize in the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards. Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practice.
Colin Sykes, CEO at Aqualisa, commented, “Aqualisa has always placed enormous importance on health and safety in the workplace. 2020 was a particularly challenging year from an H&S perspective for all companies, and I am proud of the outstanding work carried out by our teams, who established new processes and measures quickly and efficiently to ensure that our employees were able to continue to operate in a safe environment. I would like to thank each and every one of my colleagues for their exceptional response. This Gold Award is testament to everything they have accomplished over the last 18 months.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said, “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 seven million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2,000 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.”
