Ten out of ten for health and safety sees SARH set for prestigious President’s Award

Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) is set for a major award from an organisation at the forefront of promoting health and safety.

The area’s leading provider of affordable homes is to be handed the prestigious RoSPA President’s Award after winning the organisation’s Gold Medal for the TENTH year in a row.

The internationally renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards are the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.

It receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

SARH will be presented with the accolade during a ceremony at ExCeL, London, today (Tuesday 19th June).

Karen Armitage, SARH Chief Executive, said the accolade emphasised the organisation’s absolute commitment to health and safety.

“We’re delighted to have won the Gold Medal for the tenth consecutive year and the President’s Award that comes with it,” she said. “Together they embody the values of excellence, that are at the heart of everything we do, and our mission to create great places to live, work and grow.

“At SARH, we are also constantly striving to further improve the way we work by creating an even safer environment. Every RoSPA award we win spurs us on to take our standards higher and higher.

“Constant improvement comes from a desire to listen to our staff and customers about how we can further improve workplaces and local communities.

“The President’s Award stands as testament to ten years of superb communication and diligent hard work.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, President’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
