One of the market leaders in drainage services throughout the Midlands, they will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, June 6, 2019.

Paul Pagett, Wilkinson Environmental’s HSQE Manager said “This was the first year Wilkinson Environmental submitted an entry for the award scheme and, whilst aiming to get a foothold on the ladder with a merit, we are delighted to qualify for a Silver Award.

 We are very proud to have been recognised by this award. As a business, we are dedicated to good practice in health, safety and wellbeing. Receiving the award allows us to build upon our reputation and commitment to constantly achieving a high standard of health, safety and wellbeing in all tasks that we undertake.”

The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards have become the key fixture in the health and safety calendar with new sponsors and new awards this year including the Leisure Safety Awards, the Safe@Work Safe@Home Award and the Inspiration Awards. Highly-respected, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, RoSPA award winners benefit from the wide-ranging rewards of improved sector reputation.”

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.

There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international, new entry, workforce involvement and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.

Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2019 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 14th consecutive year.
