SSE Enterprise Contracting has been presented a Silver RoSPA award for Occupational Health and Safety in 2014 its 9th consecutive award and the Electrical and Instrumentation division received third place in the 2014 ‘Engineering Construction Industry’ Sector, following on from their 20 consecutive Gold Awards.
The high performance of SSE Enterprise Contracting’s specialist Electrical and Instrumentation division is particularly notable as the majority of the E&I work is carried out in extremely hazardous environments.
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the 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.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as SSE Contracting Ltd, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations.”
Daron Mullineaux, Managing Director, said: “SSE Enterprise Contracting are very proud and honoured to accept this award. We take safety as our main priority and believe all accidents are preventable, so we do everything safely and responsibly or not at all.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that demonstrate commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. SSE Contracting has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”
