Leading civil engineering firm Jones Bros has picked up a gold medal for the ninth year in a row for outstanding health and safety standards.
The firm has been awarded the gold national accolade in the prestigious scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The award will be presented to Jones Bros at a ceremony at the ExCel in London on Tuesday 20 June, as RoSPA marks its 100th anniversary.
Jones Bros health and safety manager Mike Mowbray said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded gold yet again.
“This is our ninth successive year of winning gold, and we work hard to retain and improve our own health and safety standards.
“Health and safety is central to everything we do, and the collective effort of all of our workforce has helped win this award.”
The non-competitive scheme is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. Entrants are judged on occupational health and safety management systems, including leadership and workforce involvement.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world.
“Winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.”
“This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
Founded in the 1950s, Jones Bros employs 350 people. It operates across the UK in sectors including construction of waste management facilities, highways and renewable energy projects such as wind farms.
