To be awarded a Gold Achievement Award, as part of the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards, companies must not only provide evidence of rigorous management systems, but also show that good health and safety practices have been embedded into the culture of the company. In turn this shows high levels of compliance and lower than average accident statistics.

David Rawlins, RoSPA's awards manager, said: "VolkerStevin has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well being of its employees and others. Organisations which do this deserve to have such dedication recognised and that's where the RoSPA Awards come in

"As well as there being clear ethical reasons and legal requirements for good health and safety management, there is also a strong business case. RoSPA is delighted to publicly honour organisations which have demonstrated their work to improve performance in this sphere."

John Hume, operations director at VolkerStevin said: "The RoSPA awards scheme is not only about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work; but also about ensuring we have robust health and safety management systems.

"These systems ensure that good health and safety practice is second nature to our employees and that reporting and prevention is an easy process rather than a cumbersome one.

"I am pleased that we have once again shown our commitment to the health and safety of not only our employees but also of visitors and the general public who may come in to contact with our works."

The Gold Award, which recognises excellent health and safety management systems and performance, will be presented to VolkerStevin at a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel on Wednesday 12 May 2010.
