EM&I is pleased to announce that it has won a third gold medal at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards 2014. The medal, awarded as a result of seven consecutive gold awards, will be presented at a ceremony in London on 17 June.

As the UK’s family safety charity, RoSPA’s mission to save lives and reduce injuries covers all ages and stages of life. In support of this mission, the RoSPA Awards, which date back 58 years, recognise commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work. Through the scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins said: "The RoSPA Awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations that gain recognition for their health and safety management systems, such as EM&I, contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to, and we offer them our congratulations."

EM&I Group CEO Danny Constantinis said: "We are delighted that EM&I’s approach to the prevention of accidents and ill health has been recognised in the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards. We are honoured to receive our third gold medal, as health and safety is paramount in everything we do and this award reflects the vigilance of our teams. We are proud of what they achieve and their focus in ensuring EM&I continue to meet the highest standards."
