Fifth Year of Golden Success for Freebridge Community Housing
Freebridge Community Housing has achieved a Gold in the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents award – for the fifth year in a row.
The west Norfolk based housing and community organisation has been recognised in the Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2015 which are run by the safety charity the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which dates back 59 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.
Colin Davison, Director of Property with Freebridge said: It’s fantastic, that for the fifth year running, we’ve achieved a Gold Medal award from RoSPA. The process is extremely thorough, and as we take the health and safety of our tenants, employees and suppliers very seriously, we really value this accreditation.
“I would like to thank our Health and Safety Committee who can be very proud of helping us to achieve this award, along with the rest of the organisation for putting health and safety at the forefront of what we do on a daily basis.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager went on to comment: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Freebridge Community Housing, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
