It’s Gold for Wrekin Housing Trust
Telford-based housing association, The Wrekin Housing Trust, has achieved a gold award at the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards.
The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK and recognises how organisations approach their health and safety practices.
Libby O’Neill, Health and Safety Partner at The Wrekin Housing Trust, said: “We’re very proud to receive a gold award from RoSPA. Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do, and this award demonstrates the hard work and commitment to keep our employees and tenants safe.
The RoSPA Awards scheme promotes the reduction of accidents and cases of ill-health at work, and also encourages organisations to develop robust health and safety management systems. Sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the RoSPA awards grade achievement at merit, and bronze, silver and gold levels.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Qualifications, Awards and Events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety sector and organisations demonstrate a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees, but all those who interact with it. The Wrekin Housing Trust has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of another gold award.”
