AFI has achieved their ninth consecutive Gold Award at the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK.
AFI won the Gold Award in the construction category, so it has been awarded the landmark RoSPA Gold Medal presented to those organisations which have achieved five to nine consecutive Gold Awards. AFI first won the RoSPA Gold Medal in 2019 for five consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations worldwide, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Ian Price, HSEQ Manager, AFI Group Services, said:
"We are delighted to have been awarded the prestigious RoSPA Gold Medal again as a result of achieving the Gold Award for the ninth consecutive year. The Gold Medal Award is a testament to the hard work of our people and our commitment to achieve consistent excellence in the practice of health and safety."
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 AFI 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."
The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards is the UK's largest occupational health and safety awards programme. Now into its 67th year, the Awards have almost 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The programme recognises organisations' commitment to continuous improvement in preventing accidents and ill health at work, looking at entrants' overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
