The long-term commitment of M Group Services and its operating businesses to the highest standards of health, safety and wellbeing has been recognised with multiple awards at this year’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) awards.
M Group Services operating businesses have received a total of 14 RoSPA awards, which were presented at an award ceremony at the ExCel in London recently.
As well as eight gold and one silver award, operating businesses across the Group have been recognised with three orders of distinction and a president’s award, presented to businesses sustaining the high standards of Gold award level over consecutive years.
RoSPA’s annual awards are one of the most prestigious and recognised schemes in the world, achieving success is a clear demonstration of good safety performance.
Jim Arnold, Chief Executive at M Group Services, said: “Safety is one of our core values at M Group Services and these awards from RoSPA are evidence of how this value permeates throughout our people and the work they do. Our people recognise the importance of creating working environments which are safe and healthy for everyone delivering our essential works, as well as all those who come into contact with us and the work we do.
“Our focus on safety forms an essential element of our Group environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets. As part of this, we are committed to supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, one of which is Good Health and Wellbeing. Aligned with this development goal, these award wins highlight how our people are developing and implementing strong governance policies and procedures which bring significant social benefits, keeping our colleagues, clients and the public safe and healthy.
It’s great to see our businesses picking up these awards and brilliant so many of these wins are consecutive. These successive award wins demonstrate the consistent and continuous high standards our people set. However, we must never get complacent as there is still a lot of effort and focus required to get to zero incidents.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “All our award entrants demonstrate their unwavering commitment and passion for keeping people safe at work. By receiving this recognition, M Group Services and its operating businesses join like-minded businesses and organisations worldwide, who represent the very best in their approach to Health and Safety.
“I would like to add my personal thanks for all the work that it has taken to secure these well-deserved award – congratulations to all those involved, who champion and drive-up Health and Safety standards every day. You are a fantastic example to others in your sector.”
All four businesses in our Telecom Division have picked up a RoSPA award. Morrison Telecom Services, Magdalene and Avonline Networks were each awarded a second consecutive Gold award. Waldon Telecom secured a Silver award.
