THE ROYAL Society for the Prevention of Accidents has given Sandwell Leisure Trust its highest possible accolade.
Sandwell was awarded the President’s Award at the 2018 Health and Safety Awards, the first leisure trust nationwide to achieve the distinction.
The Black Country-based company has landed the award thanks to gaining 12 consecutive gold awards.
Sandwell chief executive Ash Rai said: “This is fantastic news and testament to the team’s efforts across all the Trust’s facilities over the past year. Maintaining the highest standards of health and safety continues to be an absolute priority for the Trust.
“This achievement again underlines the expertise and hard work of all our teams to provide a safe environment for staff, customers and visitors across all our sites.”
Chair of the trust’s board Lynda Bateman said: “The RoSPA Award is the most highly-respected health and safety accolade globally, so we’re extremely honoured. SLT was initially the first leisure trust to achieve the RoSPA gold award - and to retain the award over 12 consecutive years demonstrates the consistent high standard achieved by all staff at all the trust’s facilities.”
The RoSPA Awards look at occupational health and safety management systems in addition to accident and ill-health prevention. It’s the longest running industry awards scheme in the UK and receives entries from organisations worldwide.
