Sodexo receives RoSPA President’s Award for decade of gold awards for safety

Sodexo’s corporate services business has received a gold award from RoSPA every year for the last ten years, entitling the organisation to the RoSPA President’s Award.

RoSPA’s health and safety awards are internationally recognised and awarded to organisations demonstrating outstanding health and safety standards.

For ten consecutive years Sodexo’s corporate services business has successfully achieved the gold award in recognition of its commitment and initiatives to communicate and drive a world class health and safety system with the priority of keeping its employees and customers safe whilst at work.

Julie Ennis, CEO corporate services, Sodexo UK & Ireland ,said, “We are delighted to have achieved the President’s Safety Award for ten years of gold standard health and safety practice.

“At Sodexo the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers and all those we serve is our top priority.

“This fantastic achievement is testament to the continued hard work of our teams who every day are working on our client sites to not only deliver excellence in the services we provide but to do so with health and safety considerations at the top of their minds, always.”

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Julia Small, RoSPA’s achievements director, said, “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations across the globe, making it one of the most sought-after achievement awards for health and safety worldwide.

“RoSPA is very proud of the achievements of its entrants, and with this award we recognise the best of the best, those organisations that have gone the extra mile, raising the bar for the delivery of safety in the workplace.

Employees, wherever they may be should be able to go to work safe in the knowledge that they will return home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day.

Our RoSPA Award winners are central to achieving this goal. By entering they are driving up standards and setting new safety benchmarks for organisations across the world.

Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s global influence is even wider – with nearly 2000 organisations from 46 countries represented this year. I would also particularly want to thank our main sponsor NEBOSH, the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for their continued support for the 16th consecutive year.
