Yorkshire-based kitchen manufacturer Moores Furniture Group has scooped a RoSPA Award, demonstrating its commitment to health and safety.
Moores won a Commendation Award in the Manufacturing Industry Sector category of the health and safety awards, which follows on from its Commendation Award win in 2020.
Now in its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries each year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees.
The programme recognises organisations’ commitment to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and ill health at work, looking at health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Health and safety manager at Moores Kevin Bell said: “Here at Moores, we aspire to be a business leader in Health and Safety management, compliance, and behaviour.
“The RoSPA Awards go beyond simply recognising the business systems, it benchmarks leadership, demonstrating the importance of engagement and cooperation from our internal and external work colleagues.
“Recently, we have focused strategically on building our management teams competence in investigating incidents and accidents, using root-cause analysis to identify all factors relating to an incident, not just simply addressing the aftermath.
“We will continue encouraging our colleagues to keep looking and keep challenging, which means we can keep improving and keep our people safe at work.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption – they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life.
“That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
“We are thrilled that Moores furniture has won a RoSPA Award and would like to congratulate them on showing an unwavering commitment to keeping their employees, clients and customers safe from accidental harm and injury.”
