MITIE wins Gold RoSPA award

Press Release   •   Sep 23, 2010 22:50 BST

MITIE, the strategic outsourcing company, is celebrating winning a prestigious RoSPA Gold Occupational Health and Safety Award in its property management division. 

This year’s RoSPA Awards ceremony will take place in the Hilton Glasgow Hotel in September and is sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body. 

The RoSPA Awards scheme is not only about reducing the number of accidents and cases of ill-health at work, it also encourages organisations to develop robust health and safety management systems. 

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s award manager said, “MITIE has shown 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.”

Dick Robinson, Director of Safety, Quality and Environment for MITIE’s Property Management division said, “Health and safety is a top priority for us at MITIE and winning this award is great recognition of our work in this area. From our senior managers through to our people working on-site, everyone is committed to making sure health and safety procedures are followed and we’re always looking for ways to improve and get better at what we do. Winning this award is a result of the whole company’s commitment to health and safety practices and my congratulations go out to all of the team.”

Notes for editors

What is MITIE?
We’re the strategic outsourcing company. What does that mean in practice? We manage facilities, properties and assets for our clients across the UK and beyond.

We work with our clients in three ways; some take full advantage of our whole range of expertise, others may only need one aspect of what we do:

Strategy and consultancy
+ Facilities and project management
+ Service delivery

Our strategic input can add value at the highest level by helping clients to manage their assets, while our practical management expertise can save customers money and reduce their carbon emissions. We work with a vast number of clients in every industry across both the public and private sectors and deliver the broadest range of services that can be found in one place: from integrated facilities management to engineering maintenance to lifecycle energy management and much more.

There’s a lot more to MITIE than you probably think. We’re a big company with big ambitions – a leading FTSE 250 support services business, with more than 56,000 people, revenues in excess of £1.7bn, and a reputation for being the best.
