Celtic has received the Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 59 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said: “The RoSPA Awards encourage improvement in occupational health and safety management. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as Celtic Technologies Ltd Subsidary of Englobe Corp, contribute to raising standards overall and we congratulate them.”
Celtic’s Managing Director, Dr Joe Teer said “I am delighted that Celtic, having entered the awards for the first time, have won the RoSPA Gold Award .The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards are internationally recognised and have fast become the most sought after accolade by organisations from every sector. This outstanding achievement is testament to the hard work of the entire Celtic workforce, which has actively embraced the use of the companies IMS (SHEQ) systems, improving the safety performance of the UK team.”
The majority of RoSPA’s awards are non-competitive, grading achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations that maintain high standards in consecutive years can win gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction. Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 industry sectors, and they also recognise excellence in specialist areas, such as the management of occupational road risk (MORR).
