Cuadrilla wins gold in 2013 RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Awards

April 15, 2013

CUADRILLA has been awarded the Gold Award for Occupational Health and Safety by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The RoSPA Awards scheme, dating back 57 years, 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 not only looks at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Cuadrilla will be presented with the award at a special presentation ceremony, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, on Tuesday May 14.

Leon Jennings, Cuadrilla’s Health, Safety, Security & Environment Director, said:

“I’m delighted that RoSPA have recognised Cuadrilla’s achievement and commitment to raising the standards of health and safety management.

“This gold award is a great recognition of all the efforts Cuadrilla staff and our partners have made in the last 12 months.”

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.

“Cuadrilla 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.”
