And a second year of ‘silver’ leaves the way open to going for gold…

Norse Group has once again achieved the Silver Award for protecting the health and safety of its staff and operations under the prestigious RoSPA Achievement Awards scheme.

The awards submission demands extensive, evidenced-based answers to some wide-ranging challenges focusing upon everything from an organisation’s strategic health and safety goals, to its communication plans and behavioural based safety campaigns.

The submission is judged against a set criterion governed by RoSPA, and Norse Group SHEQ Director, Jamie McDonald, explained that getting an award is, by no means, a certainty.

“Being awarded ‘Silver’ for a consecutive year in this highly prestigious scheme is a testament to the safe working practices of our services, and to the dedication of our managers and staff within Norse Group.

“It is particularly impressive that this award has come during a global pandemic when most of our teams were delivering essential, frontline services, helping to keep local communities safe, while operating at such a high level of safety.

“It demonstrates, once again, the developing positive safety culture among our staff, even in the most challenging of circumstances.”

Senior Norse Group Health and Safety Manager, Peter Sommerfield said: “I thoroughly enjoyed collating the award submission on behalf of the Group. But we are far from complacent.

“As well as highlighting the areas in which we currently excel, it helps you to identify and begin to address those areas where you still need to improve. We are looking forward to focusing on those areas now and in aiming for ‘Gold’ next year.”
