Veolia Water Technologies UK (VWT UK) has achieved the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award for Health & Safety for an 18th consecutive year, maintaining its RoSPA Order of Distinction accolade.

One of the most prestigious and recognised schemes in the world, with almost 2,000 entries each year, the RoSPA Health & Safety Awards offer organisations a key opportunity to benchmark their health and safety performance as well as demonstrating an ongoing commitment to raising standards. Therefore, by receiving this Order of Distinction, VWT UK has once again been recognised as a world leader in health and safety practices. 

Commenting on the award, Lyndsey Wicks, Health & Safety Manager at VWT UK said: “We are delighted to receive a RoSPA Order of Distinction for Health & Safety for the 18th consecutive year. As a company, we’re proud to put the safety of our staff at the forefront of everything we do and gaining this award once more is testament to that commitment.”

Speaking on this year’s awards, Julia Small, Achievement Director at RoSPA commented: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, and it also 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 for delivery of safety in the workplace.”

A majority of the awards are non-competitive and mark achievement based on 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. Achieving the Order of Distinction award requires 15 consecutive Gold Awards. Following this year’s Gold Award and 18th Order of Distinction, VWT UK will now set its sights towards next year’s awards and maintaining another year of excellent workplace safety.
