Port of Cromarty Firth wins internationally recognised health and safety accolade from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)
The Port of Cromarty Firth (PoCF), based in Invergordon, has fought off stiff international competition to scoop a prestigious RoSPA Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety excellence.
PoCF has won a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award in its industry sector category, demonstrating its dedication to ensuring its staff, customers, clients and contractors get home safely at the end of every working day.
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the largest occupational health and safety awards programme in the UK. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees.
The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. While most awards are non-competitive – recognising individual organisations’ achievements – competitive awards are presented in 20 industry sectors and for specialist areas of health and safety management.
PoCF chief executive, Bob Buskie, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised with a Gold Award from RoSPA.
“It builds on the Silver Award we received last year and shows all the hard work by everyone at the Port is continuing to consistently deliver the highest safety standards here.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that The Port of Cromarty Firth has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
Sponsored by Croner-i, the RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for the health and safety industry.
