Cavendish Nuclear secures prestigious RoSPA President’s Award

Babcock’s Cavendish Nuclear business has been awarded the prestigious President’s Award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The President’s Award is only given to companies which have won ten RoSPA Gold Awards in succession; one a year for each of the last 10 years. Each Gold Award requires demonstrating a very high level of performance, well developed occupational health and safety management systems and culture, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.

In addition, the company also won the RoSPA Gold Medal Fleet Safety Award (seven consecutive Golds), which recognises an effective, cohesive corporate road risk management programme following RoSPA’s Managing Occupational Road Risk (MORRTM) principles to manage our greatest risk – driving.

Paul Unsworth, SSHEQR Director said, “These awards are testimony to the fact that everyone in our business does the right thing to ensure continued excellence in health, safety and welfare in everything we do and I would like to thank everyone in our business for their engagement and involvement in achieving these awards”

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards are internationally-renowned and the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practices and are recognised for their achievement in health and safety management systems and performance, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
