The Property Management team is pleased to announce that our approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health has been recognised with a Gold Award in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2012.

The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards scheme is the largest and longest-running programme of its kind in the UK. It recognises commitment to accident and ill health prevention and is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. The scheme does not just look at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, awards manager at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity with a 95-year history, said:

“The Mitie’s Property Management division on its success and encourage it, and all our other winners, to remain committed to safety and health, an approach that is well recognised to be good for workers and the bottom line.”

The Gold award will be presented at a ceremony at the Hilton Glasgow on Thursday, September 20th.

Dick Robinson, Property Management QHSE Director 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 management to our people working on-site, everyone is committed to making sure health and safety procedures are followed and we are always looking for ways to improve and get better at what we do. Winning this award is the result of the whole company’s commitment to health and safety practices and my congratulations go out to all of the team”.
