Watford Community Housing has received the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents Silver award for the third year running, in recognition of its dedication to ensuring its staff get home safely at the end of the working day.
Being awarded the RoSPA Silver highlights Watford Community Housing’s continued commitment to maintaining an exceptional workplace safety record.
In order to achieve the internationally-recognised award, an organisation must have exceptionally high standards of health and safety management systems, which include workforce engagement, digital records and strong evidence of robust accident-prevention procedures. Staff at Watford Community Housing receive consistent, high-quality training in first aid, accident prevention, fire safety and evacuation procedures, which results in a safe working environment across a variety of sites.
Paul Schofield, Health and Safety Business Partner at Watford Community Housing said: “We are thrilled to have once again obtained the RoSPA Silver award. Receiving an award which is recognised around the world for three years in a row demonstrates just how seriously we take the health and safety of our staff. The award also recognises the commitment of our staff in working together to keep our offices, homes, communities and development sites safe for everyone.”
Julie Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, added: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year. They allow organisations like Watford Community Housing to prove excellence in health and safety in the workplace, and to demonstrate a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with the organisation.”
