TWI is delighted to have been awarded both a Gold Award and a Silver Award in the prestigious RoSPA Awards for 2011.
The Gold was granted for Management of Occupational Road Risk and the Silver for Occupational Health and Safety.
The awards will be presented at a ceremony at the National Exhibition Centre, on 19 May 2011.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.
David Rawlins, RoSPA's awards manager, said: 'RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition. TWI Ltd has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.'
Gill Taylor, TWI's Manager for Quality and Safety, said: 'We are delighted and honoured to have been given both these awards by RoSPA. As a company, Quality and Safety drive everything we do and it is wonderful to have this recognised in such a high profile manner.'
The majority of RoSPA's awards are non-competitive, marking achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Organisations maintaining high standards can win gold medals, president's awards and orders of distinction.
Competitive awards are presented in more than 20 sectors, and specialist awards recognise excellence in specific areas.
The RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2011 are sponsored by NEBOSH (The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health), the leading health and safety professional examining body.
