Forrest is a winner at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017.

The Health and Safety department achieved the Gold Medal (nine consecutive Golds) award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

They were presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, July 13, 2017. The award was achieved during a special year for family-safety charity RoSPA, as it celebrates its centenary.

Through the RoSPA Awards scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Emma Bolton, Health & Safety Advisor at Forrest, said: “Winning our ninth consecutive RoSPA gold is an exceptional achievement for the whole business. It demonstrates a thorough commitment by all employees in ensuring our construction sites are safe, for all operatives and members of the public”.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.

“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
