Levy Restaurants UK, the sports, leisure and hospitality sector of Compass Group UK and Ireland, achieved the Gold award in the prestigious annual scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
They were presented with the award during a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, on July 14, 2016, as the event marks its diamond anniversary.
The RoSPA Awards is celebrating 60 years of presenting highly-regarded and sought after accolades to businesses and organisations which have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.
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.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
David Crowe, Head of HSE at Levy Restaurants UK, said: “This award recognises our continued commitment to the improvement of our health and safety culture and ensuring safety is first in everything we do. It is a testament to the effective leadership we have in place, promoting health and safety, and to all of our operational teams and strategic partners in ensuring a collaborative approach to promoting a safe working and visitor environment.”
